Meeting with an OISS Adviser

OISS advisers are always available to answer your questions or talk about your concerns. OISS is open from 9:00am-4:30 pm Monday-Friday, with the exception of Tuesday when we open at 12pm.

  • To schedule an appointment with your OISS adviser, click here. You can schedule either phone or in-person advising, so select that option when you make your appointment. If you think your question might take more than 30 minutes, simply sign-up for two time-slots back-to-back.
  • Email or call your Adviser - All of our advisers have large case loads of students and scholars, but we do their best to get back to you as soon as possible. You can find their phone numbers and emails on our Contact OISS page. You can reach the OISS front desk at 203-432-2305.
  • Walk-In Hours - OISS has walk-in hours Monday-Friday afternoons from 12 noon-4:00pm. An on-call adviser will be available to speak to you and answer questions. Walk-in hours are intended for travel signatures or quick questions. If your question is more complicated and likely to take more than ten minutes, it is best to schedule an appointment with your OISS adviser.   Please keep in mind that you may have to wait for 10-15 minutes if there are others in front of you.



There are three visitor parking spaces immediately in front of the International Center. When visiting OISS you are welcome to park in one of these three spaces. Do not park in any of the other spaces in this lot as your car will be towed. If the International Center Visitor parking spaces are unavailable, there is metered parking on Temple Street.
