Hours, Campus Location & Faculty Contact Information

The Hutchins Main Office is located in Rachel Carson Hall, Room #44, and is open from 8:30am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. The main office is also open for the summer and winter holidays, operating on similar hours, though all staff/faculty members may not be available for drop-in appointments. The Hutchins School office is closed on weekends and all campus holidays.

Rachel Carson Hall is located at the north side of the Jean and Charles Schulz Information Center and Ambrose Nichols Hall, and just east of Zinfandel Hall and the Zinfandel/Cabernet residential community. Parking Lot A is the closest parking lot to Carson, but requires a Reserved Pass to park.
