Location

Our meeting location is UNR's Full Specturm Cybersecurity Lab (FSC), located in LME 321. We use the lab computers for workshops and activities. The computers are not on the NetID system; please request an account at one of the general meetings.

For the 2020-2021 school year we are meeting online via Zoom rather than in the FSC. Zoom links for our meetings are posted in our Slack workspace. We are hoping to be back in person for Fall 2021.
