The Library also provides free Wi-Fi at most locations. Students may choose to bring their own personal laptop if their institution allows. You should contact your branch ahead of time if you have any questions regarding public PC use for proctored exams.

Please schedule all exams one week prior to the exam. You may schedule multiple exams at once if possible. Missed appointments will be handled on a case by case basis.
