Important Notes on Privacy and Confidentiality of Information

A student operator (also called a “common supporter”) will answer questions and offer consultation in a Zoom meeting room. You can speak, exchange text messages, and share screens with the operator. When you access the Zoom meeting room, you will first be taken to a waiting room. Please wait there for your turn.

Business hours:Mon-Fri, 8:25 a.m. - 6:40 p.m.

A student operator (also called a “common supporter”) will receive your inquiry submitted through an email form, and respond to it through email. Faculty members will take over if the issue cannot be resolved by student staff. Inquiries that include confidential information such as personal grades, will be handled by faculty members. To ensure that such inquiries are directly sent to faculty members (and not opened by student operators), please click on the “I would like to be supported only by faculty members” checkbox in the email form.
