Does anyone know of a place in the Seattle region relatively near the University where I could have access to a (cheap) black and white darkroom? The only one I'm aware of is the Photographic Center Northwest, but I was wondering if anyone knew of any other resources (I don't want to have to take any basic photography classes, I just want access to decent enlargers and chemicals so I can do my own thing).

Thanks in advance. :)

This is a rough draft of what the user interface might be like (with only a few features working). The team designing the interface wants to know how easy or difficult it is to understand, so they're looking for a few people to test it tonight or tomorrow (Thursday). The testing takes about 5-10 minutes.
