Can I have an event in METRC?

Yes! Provided you meet the criteria listed in our Space Usage Policy. Please keep in mind that the space we have now in Hill Library is smaller than what we had in Poe, so we won’t be able to accommodate the same types of events as previously.

Can you help me fix something/help with technology?

We are happy to help troubleshoot any technology that you’ve checked out from METRC. No appointment is necessary but please come with enough time to properly evaluate the problem. Personal item help should be directed to EdIT.

I need help with teaching/can someone help me with my class?
