Things to Know About The Building

  1. The front vestibule (entrance near the gym) is open 24/7 when classes are in session, even when the library is closed. This area offers printer access (CENT-Print_Anywhere) - swipe your Student ID card to release your prints.

  2. You are welcome to bring your food and drink into the library. On the lower level there is a filtered water station for refilling your cups/bottles.

  3. The front entrance, near the gym, offers a ramp for accessibility. There is an ADA accessible bathroom located behind the library service desk.

  4. The large room to the left of the library service desk is known as the Quiet Study Area; please remain silent or speak at a low volume. The rest of the library is designated for group study and a reasonable level of noise is to be expected.

  5. The Library Building also houses the Writing Collaboratory and the Print Shop, both on the lower level. The Academic Success and Advising Center and the Disability Services Office are next door in the Harris and Betts Smith Learning Center (sometimes referred to as the Library Annex).
