Help Room Announcements

Help Room has moved to 314 Russ Engineering Center for this semester.


Quick access to knowledgeable individuals 

We are available for simple questions related to development environments, programming language syntax, and logic errors. Our Help Room staff will help you understand the specific requirements of programming assignments. They will not help you design solutions to assignments. If you have questions about program design ask the course TA or instructor.

We can answer questions about:

  • Programming assignments for courses using languages such as Java, Python, C, and C++
  • Discrete mathematics

If you are taking  CS 1160, 1180, 1181, 1200, 2200, CEG 2170, and MTH 2570, we will attempt to help you.
