UCL First and Second Floor Renovations Completed in 2018

In summer 2018, we made renovations to revitalize our Central Campus University/College Library first and second floor space to better accommodate the needs of our students! 

Here's a quick summary of our changes and a few pictures of our new spaces can be viewed below:

  • Reference was moved from the west side of the lobby to Room 164 on the east side of the lobby. It includes a new Reference Desk where patrons can receive help from a librarian; a one-on-one research appointment room; our Leisure and Ready Reference collections; and a quiet study zone. 
  • The former Reference Desk now houses our Tech Assistants group who assist students with printing or other technical needs they may have.
  • FAU’s Computer Lab was moved into Room 104, providing additional space and computers specifically for FAU students.
  • Room 162 is a new Library Instruction Room where our librarians conduct classes with students. The room is equipped with 25 computers.
  • The Tutoring Lab moved from Room 146 into larger, newly redesigned space inside the Academic Success Center in Room 234. The lab offers student support in modern foreign languages, economics, business, and biological sciences, as well as services specifically tailored to meet student accessibility needs. Software for Computer Science and other programs is also available.
  • Room 146 was split into two rooms - Room 146 houses a collaborative classroom and Room 146A houses our AV staff.
  • And, we have six new rooms in the open area to the rear of the first floor:
  • A multimedia lab providing computers with design software for FAU or BC students studying graphic design or working on design projects.
  • A collaborative study room which is equipped with a computer and large monitor to work on projects with a group.
  • Four rooms for individual booking which can be used to practice speeches or record audio.
