Office Hours Utility

Office Hours utility text logo

The Office Hours utility helps students book office hours with faculty, TAs and staff across the School of Architecture and Planning. You can manage your office hours using this application including viewing slots for the current term, creating new slots and editing/removing/assigning existing ones. You can authorize a TA which allows them to create/edit office hours. Finally, there is the option to deactivate one's account which hides one's name and any existing slots from public view (useful if on leave).

Faculty/Staff can register for the Office Hours System without having first to contact cron — visit
