Connect with an LFS Academic Advisor

Meeting with an Academic Advisor (Heather, Ella, Bonita, Joel) is a good idea for when you have general questions about:

  • planning your program or degree requirements
  • how to make the most of your LFS academic and non-academic experience
  • a personal challenge that is impacting your academics

We provide confidential advising and will do our best to answer your questions, or help connect you with appropriate resources.

Connecting with us may look a little different this year, but we’re here to help! (you’ll have to supply your own candy, however!)

Drop-in Zoom Advising

To attend drop-in to connect one-on-one with an Academic Advisor, click the drop-in link in the calendar below during the open hours. You’ll be brought to our Zoom virtual waiting room. When ready, a Student Services staff or student staff member will admit you in to the main room, and ask you a few intro questions to assess your needs. Then, they will connect you with an Academic Advisor in a break out room for a confidential advising appointment.

Depending on the number of students in the waiting room, it may be some time before you connect with an Advisor, so thank you for your patience. Please note that links will only work if drop-in is open, and once we have reached capacity for the day, the meeting room will be locked and no new students will be admitted to the waiting room. Thank you for understanding.

Booked Zoom Appointments

Sometimes our drop-in hours don’t line up quite right with your schedule! We’d still love to meet with you, and will be offering booked appointment slots starting the week of September 21st. More information to come.

Email

Contact us at students@landfood.ubc.ca and an Academic Advisor will respond. Please note, volumes are high at this time, as we welcome back and support all students in LFS. If your question is more time-sensitive, you may wish to visit drop-in advising, when you’re able.

Zoom Set-Up Instructions

Drop-in and Booked appointments are being hosted on Zoom, which is a video/audio web-conferencing tool that lets us meet in real time. If you’re new to Zoom, find a guide to set-up here.
