Office Hours

Office Hours (OH) are a great place to get help on homework or clarification on concepts introduced in class.

Times and Locations

Even though we are officially back on campus, we are planning on running Office Hours both in-person and over Zoom. You can attend Office Hours hosted by all TAs — it doesn't have to be the TAs assigned to your section.

All Office Hours are listed on the calendar, in time slots colored gray:

  • For calendar events denoting physical location (e.g., CSE 4/F Breakout), the Office Hours are hosted in-person.
  • For calendar events denoting "Zoom", the Office Hours are virtual. Please take a look at the section below for instructions.

In-Person Office Hours

You may come to in-person Office Hours listed on the calendar without prior appointment. Please be sure to follow standard UW COVID-19 protocols (wearing a facial covering, social distancing, etc.). The Allen Center reception has hand sanitizer and extra masks.

If there are a lot of people at one time, we might ask you to queue by writing your name down on the whiteboard. Otherwise, we will try to walk through and check-in on everyone's progress from time to time.

The CSE breakouts are areas by the Allen Center staircase with whiteboards, couches, and windows that overlook AERB and MEB. Click here for some pictures of what they look like.

Virtual Office Hours

We will be using a spreadsheet to post Zoom meeting IDs and organize queueing. When you are ready to get help, add your name into the queue and hang out in the Zoom session. Your host will either release you from the waiting room or move you into a separate breakout room when it is your turn.

You must use your @cs Google account to access the queue spreadsheet. Your @uw account does not have the correct permissions. Let us know if you need to be manually granted access (e.g. you are a petition or non-matriculated student).

If you're looking for help on homework, we recommend joining from your computer so that you can easily share your screen, but Zoom also lets you join meetings by calling in on a phone, or through mobile apps.
