Tripod Availability

We are currently making changes to tripods in our inventory system. The numbers for tripods under our equipment availability are likely going to be inaccurate during this process. If you would like to check to see if we have tripods available, please feel free to give us a call at 540-231-4826.

Inclement Weather Update

The lab closed on Friday, January 22nd, due to inclement weather.  The University is back up-and-running, so the lab will be open on Sunday, January 24th, for regular business hours.  For anyone with equipment that was due back Friday, or is due on Sunday, you'll have a grace period until Monday at 5pm to return your equipment without penalty.  Stay safe and warm everyone!
