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. There are 4 main ways to connect with us:
Drop-in Zoom Advising
Attend drop-in to connect one-on-one with an Academic Advisor! Our drop-in hours are:
- Mondays: 1-3pm
- Tuesdays: 9-11am
- Wednesdays: 1-3pm (UBC is closed Nov. 11)
- Thursdays: No drop-in
- Fridays: 9-11am
- Saturdays and Sundays: Office is closed, no drop-in
- All times posted are in Pacific Standard Time (PST).
- Password: 12345
A couple things to note: Depending on the number of students in the waiting room, it may be some time before an Advisor connects with you. 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. We look forward to connecting!

Sometimes our drop-in hours don’t line up quite right with your schedule! Not to worry – we’d still love to meet with you. Please feel free to email us and we’ll help set up an appointment with you.
