Please note the following schedule changes from prior years:

  • We are open for three hours on Labor Day;
  • Traditionally, new freshmen laptop deployment was held on Tuesday; new freshman will be issued their laptops during June/July orientation days. This change should result in shorter wait times for laptop exchange/deployment.
  • Laptop deployment closes at NOON on Thursday, September 5th and reopens the next morning at the Technology Help Desk.
