The Virginia Beach Center has limited spaces available that meet the unique privacy requirements of ProctorU exams.

When you reserve a space at the Virginia Beach Center using the online system, you are reserving a quiet space to take the exam. ODU personnel DO NOT proctor the exam. You are not guaranteed a computer. Two ODU laptop PCs, and two sets of headphones can be checked out (subject to availability). These laptops cannot be taken outside of the Virginia Beach Center. We strongly encourage you to bring your laptop as an option.

Please remember that you must make two reservations: one with ProctorU and one with ODU Virginia Beach reservations.
