Speak to be Heard 2018Making an appointment is a preferred way of fitting in the Communication Lab into your schedule. Appointments are for 30-45 minute time slot sessions. These sessions will begin at the time of your scheduled appointments.

While appointments our preferred, we also accept walk-ins. Appointments offer the students seeking Communication Lab services a set time in which they can work directly with our tutors on the public speaking or communication based assignment or issue(s) they are having.

Cancellation Policy: To cancel your appointment, please let the Communication Lab know 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time. This way other students can have access to the time.


Students don’t need an appointment to visit the Communication Lab. Walk-In consultations are available and they are available on a first come, first serve basis. This could mean that you may have to wait for assistance from one of our tutors.

For a walk-in consultation, just stop by the Communication Lab and sign-up! Our walk-in schedule follows our office hours. 

Location Details:

Academic Success Fair 2019We are located in Reed Hall 151. Park in Parking garage 1. When you exit the garage and walk toward the main campus, turn left (Toward the right is the Cohen Student Union). As you continue on this walkway, you will see a lake and the main library building. Continue to follow that walkway next to the lake and the blue picnic tables, and then veer to the right instead of using the main Library entrance. You will pass on your left the West Entrance to the Library. Continue walking through the breezeway, following it right. Then make your first left down the academic building corridor. The entrance to Reed Hall will be the first doors on your left. Once entering Reed Hall, go down the first hallway on your right. We are the last door on the right hand side at the end of the hallway.
