Rebecca's office hours

Days & Times: TBA

My office is room 416 in the Computer Science building, which is attached to the Friend center. The easiest way to find it is to take the CS building elevator to the 4th floor, turn right out of the elevator, and go to the third office on the right.

If my officemates are in my office and someone comes to meet with me for office hours, I'll often move to the CS tea room (which is basically a much bigger communal room with lots of tables and chairs, as well as some tea). In this case, I'll put a sign on my door for you to go to the tea room. To get there, go down the long hallway to your left once you come out of the elevator on the 2nd floor. The tea room is at the end of the hall.

You're always welcome to email me to set up a time to meet outside of office hours, but I don't recommend stopping by my office unannounced and expecting me to be there, since I do work from home a lot.
