Counseling, Accessibility, and Psychological Services (CAPS)
Counseling, Accessibility, and Psychological Services (CAPS) will undergo a major renovation beginning November 5, 2013. During the remodel, our entire operation will vacate Room 264 UCEN, and will be temporarily relocated to 400 Northbank Center through February 2014. While planning has been underway to ensure a smooth continuation of services during this period, we seek your cooperation to ensure all needs are met.
IF YOU TAKE EXAMS IN CAPS:
While testing space will be available in Northbank, our testing processes will be impacted by the move. We ask that you work with our office during this time to ease the impact. In some cases, this may mean making arrangements for testing to occur in academic departments. There may also be other special arrangements that will need to be made during the construction period on a case-by-case basis. Students who have an accommodation for a reduced distraction environment should touch base with CAPS prior to each exam.
