Patron Portal

WebCheckout (WCO) is the program we use to reserve equipment for you–call 507 222-5434 or stop by Weitz 139 when we’re open. WCO’s Patron Portal lets you make a reservation yourself at any time. No-same-day-reservations still applies, and you must keep your account in good standing campus-wide to make a reservation in Patron Portal.
