    It depends on the context. 

    The other answer are correct if you are talking about 

    an elected official's time in office, then it does sound wrong. 

    If you are talking about a professor who have certain hours set aside to allow students to visit. If you are talking about  psychiatrist, doctor, government office. lawyer, or dentist, 

    they may call the hours they are open "office hours"

    When will your "office time" be over ?   could be correct 

    But sometimes it is called "office hours"  

    When do your "office hours" end? 

    In these cases,  

    When does your office close?  may be just as acceptable.

      I meant "The other answers are correct" 
      However, sometimes correcting typos causes answer to disappear

    A better way to say this is. " when will your time in the office be over". How soon can I use the office space you are currently useing.

    Something else: 'time IN office', without "the", would refur to somebody in an elected position.

    It's correct, but doesn't sound natural. If you mean what I think you mean, we would be more likely to say "When do you get out of/from work?"

      Out from work? Seriously?
