  • First time student observers must be accompanied by their faculty advisor or a senior researcher for at least half of their first observation or data reduction visit to the AOC. Attendance at our summer schools does not waive this requirement. Once a student has gained sufficient experience, he or she need not be accompanied by an advisor on subsequent visits.
  • In order to request staff assistance during your visit specify in the Notes field under Edit General Reservation Information the level of assistance required (None, Consultation, Friend) and the proposal code(s) you intend to be working on.
  • There are no public workstations and no scientific support staff at the VLA site.
