Location: Room 264 (next to the LINC at the end of the "computer hallway", on the main floor)
Hours: open for general public use during all main library hours when language classes and other groups do not have it otherwise booked. Generally, that means it is available evenings and weekends, but not as much during the business day. Facilities or Conference Services may book additional times for one-time-use groups. Unfortunately, Library staff does not have access to the full schedule.
See below for the schedule of regular classes for the current semester (to be updated).

To access the Rosetta Stone account:
If you would like a personal account for Rosetta Stone or need a headset to use the Rosetta Stone software please contact the Service desk at the Robertson Library.

If there is a problem with any of the equipment, please fill out the Report Language Lab Equipment Problem form.
UPEI internal groups wishing to book the Language Lab should book online through 25Live (login with your UPEI credentials). External (e.g. PEI community) groups should contact Conference Services, 566-0568.
