We work collaboratively with academic departments and other campus resources to support your success at the University of California, San Diego.


Calling all Warren students living in The Village!
On May 6th @4-6pm and May 7th @10am-12pm, Warren Academic Advisors will be coming to The Village for on-site academic advising. Bring any and all questions regarding pre-enrollment to the advisors, who will be meeting with students in The Gallery.

Business Hours

During business hours our advising reception is available to help students with:

Telephone advising is not available due to the heavy demand for advising services and confidentiality restrictions.

Business Hours are Monday-Friday 8am-12pm & 1pm-4:30pm. The office is closed Tuesday mornings.
