The physical Help Desk will not be open to walk-ins/visitors for Summer II due to library closure.

Summer II Student Services - Learning and Writing Centers: The Learning and Writing Centers will continue to offer one on one and small group tutoring sessions online through our scheduling platform (WCOnline) accessed through E-Campus.
