The NOAO Tucson Office, located at 950 N. Cherry, is open from 8:00
a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday-Friday. If you need assistance upon your
arrival, please check in with the Kitt Peak Support Office (318-8279, Room 172). We may be holding mail or messages for
you, or we may need some information from you about your run before
you depart to the mountain.
If you are arriving at the NOAO Tucson Office after-hours or on a
weekend or holiday (see the list of NOAO
Holidays, and need to get into the building, this is how
to do it: In advance, notify the Kitt Peak Support Office
(520-318-8279) of your approximate arrival time. Security will not
let you into the building unless advance notification has been
received. At the Cherry Avenue (west) entrance of NOAO, you will
find a telephone handset by the door to call security. Instructions
for its use are posted beside it. The Security Officer will let
you into the building after presenting your identification.
Alternatively, from an outside line you can call the Security Officer directly
at 520-312-4067. You can leave your telephone number for the person on duty to
call you back if your call goes to voicemail.
The NOAO Headquarters office will be closed for major holidays.
Please consult the list of NOAO
Holidays for which the Tucson headquarters and mountain reception
office are closed.
