After hours access to the Problem Solving Lab and Open Research Lab is available to all students currently enrolled in a CS course. In order to gain 24x7 access you first need to go to the main office in the E&CS building (room 3300) and pay a $10 fee for a proxy student ID card. Once you get your new card from the Monarch Card Center in Webb Center, send an e-mail to root@cs.odu.edu with the first five numbers on the back of your new card (below the magnetic strip) requesting access.
