NEWBIE GNOME TIP
There are TVs in Building 4. If you’d like to kick back and watch a show, there are Roku TVs in the (first floor) game room and (second floor) kitchen/lounge. You can use our shared Peacock account or sign into/cast your streaming services to the TV. (Just remember to log out afterward!)
Parking in the shade may be appealing, but every time you park outside of Noorda-COM delegated parking, you:
- Risk getting fined
- Take an RMU student’s parking spot
- Affect the number of stalls at our future campus
Facilities makes daily trips to count the number of occupied parking stalls at Buildings 1, 4, and 5. Please park in our delegated areas. This will ensure that we correctly estimate the number of parking stalls needed at our future campus.
The new pods in Building 4 should be completed later this week. Our new building is making progress too, with finish paint and tile being added on the second-fourth floors of the west side of the building.
