Additional Spaces that have met the criteria for safe opening will be added as need to increase capacity to meet student demand. We anticipate this may occur during Midterms and Finals when there is an increased need for quiet study space, access to printing resources, and wireless connectivity. Such spaces may include Thomas Hunter Hall Student Union, North Building Classrooms, the Assembly Hall, and additional floors of the Library. Available Study Spaces and drop-in availability will be posted on the website.
Students in Residence at Brookdale will have access to the Brookdale Cafeteria for study space. For additional study spaces in the Brookdale Residence Hall, See the Residential Life Section.
