Photocopying

A copy machine available to Teaching Assistants is located outside Room 2030 Kemper Hall. This machine is to be used only for copying course work, research, or departmental business. The copier is operated using an auditizer card, to be checked out from the ECE Office. To use the card, list your name, course number, and copy card number on the log sheet. Return the card promptly and record the number of copies made on the log sheet. It is necessary that the card be returned immediately so that other students have access to it.

If you are asked to prepare copies of exams or other handouts for a class, submit a copy request in the ECE office by filling out a form, attaching the originals to be copied, and placing these in the "Copy Box" on the reception desk. Note that a minimum of 24 hours is needed for these requests.

Office Hours

If you need space to hold office hours, please make arrangements with Maria Parker in the ECE Office. She will assist you with reserving suitable space.
