Karen, accountant

I needed a place without kids, dogs and husbands to study for my CPA exams. The study rooms were perfect!

Fax Service

Fax24 Service

For your faxing needs, we have a self-service Fax24 machine – on the first floor, under the stairwell. Costs are listed below. The machine takes credit or debit cards.

If you want to use cash, you can purchase a FaxCard from the Information Desk on the 1st floor, and use the code on the back of it instead of a credit card. It’s very easy to use!
