Undergraduate Campus Observatory

We are not holding in-person events during FALL 2021.

Instead, we will be hosting weekly virtual events for students in the undergraduate courses. See below for scheduled times. Your Professors and TAs will provide you with the Zoom Information prior to the event.

Some of your Professors or TAs might require you to fill out an Observatory Sheet. Please check with your Professor or TA if you are required to do this.

Undergraduate Campus Observatory 



The Campus Observatory is located on Williams Street just to the south of the parking lots, and just in front of the track. It is set back from the street a bit, so look for three domed buildings. Please note, the campus observatory is closed due to COVID-19 precautions. Weekly undergraduate events will be held virtually on Zoom using Tortugas Mountain Observatory.
