Walk-In Advising


These drop-in hours, similar to our virtual drop-in advising hours, are for quick immigration or Yale-related questions, but are not meant to be a replacement to scheduling an appointment with your OISS adviser.

Fall 2023

An OISS staff member will be available on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 1 to 4 pm.

Adviser Schedule

Every adviser is assigned a specific day of the week, so you can drop-in any time during the below schedule, but if you'd like to meet with your adviser in-person, you can look at our schedule and come in during their specific days.

Please note that this schedule is subject to change at any time.

If you are not sure who your adviser is, you can find them on this page.

Please note that this schedule is subject to change at any time. If you need to get in touch outside of these times, please contact your adviser.

No Walk-in Advising on Holidays and Recess Days

Please note that the OISS office will not be operating on official Yale holidays and recess days. Please check our Hours, Directions, and Parking page for exact dates.
