Tour Request

A tour request can be sent by e-mail to the NETL Executive Assistant, Nichole Powell, at nichole.powell@austin.utexas.edu. The request should include information about the group, including affiliation, any specific areas of interest, and number of attendees. Upon receipt of the request, the NETL Staff will evaluate whether the tour can be accommodated with available resources considering previous commitments, academic schedule, and research demands.  If you have not received a confirmation that the tour date is acceptable or been notified that an alternate tour date/time will be necessary within 3 working days, please contact Nichole at 512-232-5371.

It is important to note that, with a few exceptions identified  in the Code of Federal regulations 10CFR73, visitors 18 and older are required to be cleared via background check.  The signed background check  form for each individual who will be visiting the facility is required to initiate the check.  This process typically takes a couple of days, but can require as long as 2 weeks to complete in certain circumstances.  The completed and signed request for a background check should be emailed to the secure NETL email address well in advance of the scheduled tour date.  Please be sure handwritten forms are legible.

If you have not received notification that a tour can be arranged, or if you do not have a background check that indicates you are not a security risk, you will not be permitted to tour the NETL.
