    • Entry: The main entrance to this building is located on SW 6th Avenue. You must use this entrance to gain access to the IDSC.
    • Evenings/Weekends: The open hours of the IDSC lab may not match the open hours of the Broadway Residence Hall (BDWY) itself. The doors to BDWY are locked during evening and weekend hours, requiring a valid PSU Official ID/Access Card to gain access.

      If you need access to the lab during evenings and weekends, you can obtain a PSU Official ID/Access Card from the ID Card Services Office on the first floor of Neuberger Hall. Once you have your ID card, you will need to wait one full business day before using it to enter the building at the entrance on SW 6th Ave (facing University Pointe). If, after 24 hours, your ID card does not appear to be working, contact for additional help.
