- Please note that while we have taken measures to minimize delays, you may experience longer than usual wait times due to an expected higher volume of requests. Nearly all ACCC staff are working remotely to support the UIC community at this time. We thank you for your patience.
The ACCC computer labs and the University Libraries are currently closed for the health and safety of students and staff. If any of your students express that they do not have access to a computer and/or internet, please:
- Note to them that they can join and participate in virtual class sessions from their smartphones
- Encourage them to fill out the request form at https://accc.uic.edu/forms/laptop-request
