VUE Center

Welcome to the Visitor User Employee (VUE) Center

The VUE Center welcomes thousands of guests each year from within the US and abroad who are interested in visiting or working with SLAC. The VUE Center, located on the first floor of the Science and User Support Building at the entrance of the campus, serves as a single entry point for visitors, users, and new employees and provides a one-stop shop for services such as facility user check-ins, badging, immigration, and housing support. We look forward to helping you have a pleasant and rewarding experience.

Please see below for contact details if you need assistance with any of our services. Security Operations run 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. All other services are available Monday through Friday, except most public holidays and during the winter closure in December.
