We are not closed, we are working remotely.​

 In response to the concerns surrounding COVID-19, we are working remotely at this time. This means we will not be physically present in our usual location on campus, but we will still be available through phone, email, and through the COS online service, Cranium Cafe. 
 
You may re-check out your Spring 2020 equipment for Summer and/or Fall by submitting a new request for each semester using the ‘Online AAC Request Form’ tab below.  If you need to return your item(s), we will reach out to you to set-up a safe drop-off date and time.
