TA Office Hours

TAs will hold office hours in the location specified at CMSC335 Office hours location. The office hour schedule can be found below.

Which TA Can You Visit

You can get assistance from any of the TAs posted on the schedule below. You are not limited to only see your lab/discussion TA.


We will use Quuly for students to see a TA during office hours. Information how to register can be found at Quuly Sign up. To request help during office hours, follow the instructions provided at Requesting Help.

You Must Add Your Email Address

Important: In order for you to access the Quuly queue, you need to have an email address in Quuly. You can add/update your email address by using the Quuly “My Account” view.

Enable Notifications

We want to make sure a TA can help you immediately after you are selected from the Quuly queue.  Make sure you have Quuly notifications enabled. There is a separate desktop notification that is issued if one gives Quuly permission to send notifications to your desktop. To enable those in Chrome, one can click the lock icon and make sure notifications are set to "Allow".

When to Join the Quuly Queue

Please only join the Quuly queue during office hours or 5 minutes (no more than 5 minutes) before an office hour period starts, otherwise you will be removed from the queue without receiving assistance.

Time and Tokens Per Student

TAs will spend around 10 minutes per student if other students are waiting. If there is no other student waiting you can spend as much time as needed. There is a limit of three daily visits per student.

For Virtual (Online) Office Hours

We have a limited number of virtual/online office hours. We have them mainly for students that are sick, but everyone is welcome to attend them. If you are on campus, or can easily visit a TA in person, please do so. It will helps us a lot :) When using online office hours, follow the instructions below:

  1. Add yourself to the Quuly queue.
  2. Look at the office hours schedule and see which TA is holding office hours online. Using the appropriate TA Zoom link, open (using your UMD credentials) a proper Zoom meeting. The TA will select you based on the order you appear on the Quuly queue. IMPORTANT: If you add yourself to the Zoom session without first adding yourself to Quuly, you will not be helped by a TA.
  3. TA Zoom links (only to be used when they are holding online office hours)
