Please note that calculators are in high demand during peak times, and they can get checked out quickly each day.
Several collaboration rooms are available for students to use. Reserve them online.
The 2nd floor of Alkek Library has 4 rooms available for collaborative use. Inside are large tables with built in plugs so you may use your own device to plug in directly and display your work on the large monitor. Whiteboards are also available inside each room.
