On-Campus Space for Remote Learning
On-Campus Space for Remote Learning
This fall many students will have schedules mixed with both in-person courses taking place on campus and remote classes taking place virtually.
In some cases, schedules or housing situations may require students to take their remote course while they are on campus. To help students efficiently attend their full schedule, we are providing a list of spaces on campus conducive to remote learning.
Rivera and Orbach Libraries
Both Rivera and Orbach libraries have reservable study rooms and open study areas. For each library, the second floor serves as a quiet space and should be used only for attending remote courses where you do not intend to participate. For courses where you might need to participate, such as discussion sections, consider areas on the third floor of either building.
The libraries also have laptop kiosks and study spaces with desktop computers. In both cases, please bring your own headphones so that you do not disturb other library-goers around you.
