* - These hours are generally when an Astronomy TA will be available in the Help Center, or when someone comfortable helping with Math is scheduled to be there.  This should not preclude you from coming outside of those hours, but if your questions are specific to Astronomy or Math you may be best served trying to attend during those hours.

What to Expect

When you enter into the Zoom Room (link above), you will need to use SWIPE2 with the course number for which you are seeking help. A TA will greet you and take you to a breakout room where a TA will be able to help you. All students are welcome to attend the Physics Help Center at any time during the operating hours to get help with general physics questions. As the Physics Help Center is part of the campus-wide system of help centers, students will be expected to use the SWIPE2 system.
