Out of love and care for our community, we remain committed to offering virtual access to our programs and collective life. If you’d like to Zoom into the Lounge, email us at!

  • Sign-in to the center using the iPad located at the front desk of BSB 235. Scan the QR Code with your mobile device or enter your information into the iPad.
  • We are continuing to mask in our spaces. We have some on hand, and thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you have access needs that conflict with mask wearing, just let us know. We can work it out!

Otherwise, our space will be open anyone to use. Find out where we’re located and how to get there!
