No worries. It's casual!

Drop in anytime during the Student Hours session.

Students who attend them ask questions about resources for new students, preparing for graduation, and everything in between. UC San Diego’s internal structures are complex. Dean Antony and his team are happy to help you navigate and/or locate them. And please know that the Dean or one of this team are happy to talk with you one-on-one in a Zoom room, if you’d prefer to speak privately.

Lastly, the Graduate Division welcomes students to reach out at any time with questions or concerns.
