Is there space to store my personal belongings while I test?

Students have the option of storing personal belongings in the Thomas L. Keon Testing Center locker room, located next door in BA2-105. Please be aware that locker costs range from $0.25 to $0.50 per use. Know that while you are not required to use the locker room to store your belongings, they will not be permitted into the lab under any circumstances.

Do note that if you store your belongings in a locker without paying, the unit will be left unsecured. If a student places their belongings in the locker you’ve used without realizing it, you will need to wait until they have left the lab to collect your belongings—we cannot disturb any student actively testing, even to help you recover your property.

Free lockers are available for use in the Student Union.

If my friend and I share a locker, will we be able to exchange the key or leave it with lab staff to be picked up?

No. Lab staff are not permitted to hold on to any items belonging to student patrons or disturb anyone actively testing. If you choose to share a locker with your friend, you will need to wait outside for them to finish.

Do you offer appointments?

No. We offer walk-in testing only.

When should I come in to take my test?

As early as you can. Lab staff typically experience spikes in student activity two to three hours before any major exam is scheduled to close, usually towards the end of the night. It is strongly recommended that students do not wait until the last minute to take their exams.
