Students listening to a professor in the compujter lab. 0

World Language Media Services (WLMS) is located in University Hall 3007. We are here to meet your world language technology needs. During open hours, there is normally someone in the lab who can assist you. The WLMS Coordinator is Jenna Reynolds.

The WLMS is an excellent place to study or to meet with classmates. Students are welcome to use the lab during our hours of operation. However, it may be unavailable while a class is using it. Please see the calendar of lab availability below for open times.
