Survey Q & A - Outlets for Laptops

Where can I plug in my laptop?

We took a look around the building, moved around tables in the collaborative study room, added one surge protector strip outside of the epicenter, and another one in the Law Library area. All the surge protectors and the regular outlets should accommodate at least 36 laptops.

Look for signs on the walls where there is a outlet.

Here is also a map. The bigger red diamonds are the surge protectors each with 6 plug-in slots.

Quiet Computer Area

Comment received 2/4/2016
Can you keep people quiet in the main computer area? 

First of all, thank you for your comment! To provide both quiet and collaborative study areas for our students, we have a color coded Library Zones system (See details). The main computer area is in the Green Zone where normal talking and collaborations are allowed. 

If you need to use a computer quietly, here are a few options:
 1. Feel free to walk in the Epicenter computer lab whenever there isn’t a class even if the room is dark. It is in the Yellow Zone, so let us know if others were not quiet. 

2. Use your laptop or check out a laptop to use in the Red Silent Zone in the back. 

3. Request a study room for individual study, although you will be asked to give up the room if a group needs it.

Do you have any good ideas? How about noise canceling ear muffs for checkout at the front desk?
