Academic Office

Academic Office PersonnelThe Academic and Administrative Support Office is the place to go when you’re not sure where to find something at LPL, or whom to ask.

In addition to academic affairs, we can help you with directory updates, directions for accessing and using the LPL Academic Resource Scheduler (LARS) for room, equipment, and reservations scheduling, operation of the FAX, photocopying, and FedEx machines, mail services, and more.

We’re located in and around room 325 in the Kuiper Space Sciences Building.
