News and Announcements


CSTAT has moved to Room 100 Giltner Hall!

With the continued growth of CSTAT we are happy to have some new space to more efficiently provide CSTAT Services. Our Main Office has moved from 178 Giltner down the hall to Room 100 Giltner. We are now just to the right of the Main Entrance! The rest of our space will be undergoing a remodel to maximize the use of our existing space to better suit the needs of CSTAT so please bear with us through the upcoming construction in the next few months. If you have an appointment with a CSTAT Consultant and they didn’t specify a room number, please come to Room 100 Giltner and we will get you where you need to be for your consultation. Thank you so much for supporting our services!
