The ERC's walk-in hours are now completely virtual, held via Zoom, and are limited. We will be closed for winter break after December 23rd. See below for more details on both walk-in hours and appointments!
The walk-in hours below will take place virtually. For our virtual hours, use the Meeting ID 703-886-1924 to join or use this zoom link. When you join, you will see a message asking you to wait. Fellows will admit you into the zoom call as soon as they are done with a student.
Please check fellow skillsets below to make sure you attend walk-in hours when a fellow who is familiar with the software you are using is working. If you are not able to attend our walk-in hours, book an appointment below or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

More information about visiting the ERC:
If you’re coming for assistance with an assignment, please bring a copy of the assignment as written by your instructor.
If you need help with a dataset, please bring the dataset along with you. You can bring it on a flash drive or email it to yourself.
We have computers in the ERC with all of the software we support, so you don’t need to bring your own laptop - but if you want to, that’s fine too!
Columbia College, Columbia Engineering, Columbia School of General Studies, graduate students, faculty members, staff, and alumnae are all welcome to come by and use our help! At times our walk in lab can become very busy. When there are long wait times, we may prioritize Barnard undergraduate students.
Members of the Barnard/CU/TC community are welcome to use the computers in the lab - you do not need to log in with a uni. However, when the walk in lab is busy, we reserve the right to ask those who just want to use a computer to come back at another time.
