Quiet Study Seating Added

It’s the end of semester crunch time and seating — especially in our quiet study areas — is at a premium. We’ve allocated additional quiet study space (100+ seats) for the next two weeks. Here’s where!

Room 201 (the fishbowl) is dedicated to quiet study at the end of the semester.  There are more than 60 seats -- all of which have great access to electrical power and a nice view of campus.

The Reading Room is always a great spot to study!  We've added 10 tables and an additional 40 seats.  Not all have good access to power, but many do.
