InfBase

Times and information about our dedicated support base for Informatics students.

InfBase is a student helpdesk where year-1 and year-2 students can drop in to get additional tutoring and support with their courses. InfBase tutors are selected on the basis of expertise and coverage, offering support and advice on core pre-honours courses in Informatics. In addition to supporting drop-in assistance, InfBase can be used as a place to work together with other students, with support from an InfBase staff member.

InfBase location and opening times

InfBase is in room 7.03 of Appleton tower, and is staffed during several hours on Monday through Friday (hours TDB) during the normal semester (Weeks 3-11) and during Revision weeks. See the detailed schedule for when tutors with specific expertise will be present.

How does InfBase work?

InfBase supports student learning by providing answers to questions when you need them, by having several tutors whose expertise covers all core pre-honours courses. Just drop in into one of the sessions, you don't have to sign up in advance but comitting regularly can help you pacing your course work.

Detailed schedule

The schedule lists all the InfBase sessions from week 3 on. Colors correspond to courses, and colored cells mean that the session tutor supports a specific course. 

Some sessions have a label 'Inf1A priority' which means that questions about Inf1A are handled with priority. 

All sessions will be in Appelton tower AP 7.03, running for 1h. No need to sign up but please be flexible if the session turns out to be full. The room as around 12 workplaces.
