    • 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 or weekend hours, requiring a valid PSU-issued ID to gain access.

      IDSC users needing to gain access to the lab during evenings and weekends may obtain a white access badge from ID Services on the first floor of Neuberger Hall if they do not already have one. After receiving the access badge, wait one full business day before using it to enter the building at the entrance on SW 6th (facing University Pointe). If your badge does not appear to be working, contact for additional help.
