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 from 11am-3pm on Monday through Friday 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, including the following semester-1 courses:

  • INF1-Functional Programming
  • INF1-Computation and Logic
  • INF2A-Processing Formal and Natural Languages
  • INF2C-Introduction to Computer Systems
  • INF2C-Introduction to Software Engineering
  • Discrete Mathematics and Mathematical Reasoning

Detailed schedule

Not all tutors will be able to support all courses, and students can also learn from peers with similar questions and complementary knowledge, so InfBase will focus on different courses at different times of day. A detailed calendar will be posted once the InfBase schedule has been established, before InfBase opens for the semester in Week 3.
