Office Hours

Have questions about your website? Not sure what to do next? Need to talk to a human?

OIT Design & Web Services hosts open office hours every Friday morning from 9am until noon. Anyone who has WordPress questions can come by and talk with us, even if you’re not one of our clients. No appointment necessary.

    Avent Ferry Technology Center Room 106

Where to Go

Avent Ferry Complex
Avent Ferry Technology Center, 2114 Avent Ferry Road

Most weeks, office hours are held in the Avent Ferry Technology Center room 106 (basement), conveniently located between main campus and Centennial. Parking is available for “C” and “P” permit-holders.

From time to time, office hours will be moved to another location. We typically announce this change on our blog and update the calendar listing above during the week prior to office hours.

What to Expect

Office hours are often held concurrently with campus web developer co-working, meaning some weeks you’ll see other developers from around campus in addition to our team.

This is an added perk of office hours! If we don’t know how to solve your problem, the collective knowledge of web developers across campus may help. But it also means sometimes you’ll be walking into an ongoing conversation. Don’t worry about interrupting! It’s an informal crowd.

When you come in, ask for WordPress office hours. If one of us is free, we’ll start helping you right away! If we’re all already helping someone else, we’ll let you know about how long we expect to be.

Be sure to bring:

  • A laptop. We’ll have our own laptops as well, but it’s often best if we can both be looking at your website on on our own machines.
  • A list of questions. The more you’ve planned for us, the more we can help you!

While you don’t have to be clients of ours – we’re happy to help anyone who wants to come by – please understand that if we don’t have access to your site, or know how it was built, there may be a limit to the amount of help we can provide.

Due to our schedules you may find only one or two of us here at a time, but usually we’ll all be here on any given Friday. If you want to schedule a specific time to talk or make sure that one or the other of us will be available, you can email us at oitdesign@ncsu.edu.

Hope to see you there!
