We will do our best to accommodate you, but drop-ins are not guaranteed. Please make sure to always have your email open and turn on push notifications when you're waiting for a drop-in! You may need to wait for some time. We recommend that you make a scheduled appointment to guarantee that you are seen.

  1. Go to in your internet browser and log in with your CSUN User ID and Password.
  2. From your Dashboard, click "Schedule Appointment or View Drop-in Availability."
  3. Under "Other Options," click "View Drop-in Times."
  4. Select "Learning Resource Center (LRC)" and pick the appropriate service.
  5. Click the center name again, then select "Check-in with first available" for the best chance of being seen or use the drop-down menus to search for a specific consultant. 
  6. If a consultant becomes available, they will send you their personal Zoom link via EAB messages. Please check your messages every 10 minutes.
  7. If you do not respond within 10 minutes, you may be removed from the drop-in waiting list.
