ATS Renovations

The Academic Technology offices in AS-120 will undergo renovations this summer. The updated space will bring a new training room, equipment checkout services, and provide the ATS staff the opportunity to work in a single environment, increasing collaboration and coordination between digital and physical tools of teaching and learning. In addition to the physical renovations, ATS will also update our website this summer making it easier to find the support or service you are looking for.

During our renovation, ATS staff and BeachBoard support from AS-120 and AS-124 will be temporarily relocated to PH2. We anticipate no interruption to services while staff are displaced. Please note that the Associate Vice President office in AS-114 will not be moving and that this does not affect any Horn Center or Technology Help Desk operations. Classroom support will remain in PH2-117 until renovations are completed in September.

June 1st through August 14th, walk-in BeachBoard support will be available in our temporary location PH2-116 from 8AM to 5PM, Monday through Thursday. Starting August 14th, we will resume normal hours 8AM to 6PM, Monday through Friday in PH2-116.

All support including classroom support will move to AS-120 around September 20th. We appreciate your patience during this move and will communicate updates as we have them.

Have a suggestion? Let us know.
