Wright Library Passport Services have resumed; however, please note that you must bring a passport photo to your appointment. Wright Library cannot take photographs at this time.*
Wright Library is a U.S. Passport acceptance facility, where new passport applicants can apply for new passports in person.
An appointment is required when applying for a passport. Expect to spend about 30 minutes per applicant. (Separate appointments must be made for each individual.) You must bring your own photos. See photo guidelines below.
Visit U.S. Department of State | Apply in Person to learn about the requirements when applying for a passport in person, such as required forms and qualifying documentation.
Renewing your passport? You probably don’t need to apply in person. See instructions for renewing by mail.
