A Note to Students:

The ODS Testing Center is available as a convenience location for accommodated testing. It is not required that students take their exams at ODS. In fact, some departments may require students to test within the department and will have a plan for providing accommodations.

ODS is unable to proctor every student who receives exam accommodations and scheduling occurs on a first-come, first-served basis. Students should promptly communicate with instructors to determine how exam accommodations will be provided, and should proactively schedule exams with ODS if necessary.

Entrance to ODS Testing Center
The entrance to the ODS Testing Center is located from inside the Houser Hall lobby and just past the elevators.
