On-Campus Student Services
We’re excited to now offer a variety of student support services on campus. When fall quarter starts, we will become a vaccine-required campus as we welcome back students for in-person learning.
A variety of student support services including enrollment, financial aid, advising, TRiO, cashiering and career services are now available to students on campus. Service hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday and Wednesdays and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Most student services are located in Building 6. Virtual services, such as Zoom Lobbies and virtual appointments, will continue to be available.
The Bookstore (in Building 8) is now open 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Thursday for students interested in buying textbooks, school supplies, college merchandise and apparel, and snacks. If you prefer to skip the lines, shipping will be available through the Bookstore website. Hours will expand to 6 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays at the start of fall quarter on Sept. 27.
Placement and Testing Center (Building 1) staff are on-site and will offer drop-in placement testing during the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They will continue to offer remote placement testing and Zoom Lobbies to accommodate students who prefer off-campus services.
Beginning Sept. 20, a select number of computers in Building 30, an open lab space, will be open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 4-6 p.m., Monday and Wednesday. The open lab computers are for current students only.
Computers can be scheduled for up to three hours at a time. Appointments will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Students can enter Building 30 by appointment. A kiosk station is available for students who walk in and need to schedule an appointment for the open lab computers. All students will be checked in at the Help Desk. Face masks must be worn in the building and social distancing of 3 feet will be observed in the open lab space.
Students may continue to check out a laptop and/or hotspot by filling out a technology request form. All requests will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis while devices remain available (quantities are limited). Students may pick up devices from the equipment drive-through area located behind Building 30.
Note: All check-out devices may be picked up through a walk-up process from the Help Desk in Building 30. Nearby parking is available in the North Parking Lot.
For additional assistance to schedule a computer, contact the Help Desk at ext. HELP (4357), 206-592-4357 or email email@example.com.
From Sept. 6-23 the Library (2nd floor only) will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
