Library Feature of the Month: Study Pods

Briscoe Library is focused on being the space where students can come to learn, study, or relax 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. With almost 70 study rooms, coffee and food vending machines, exercise desks, and a Reflection Room, the library is here for students to use as their own space.

One of the library's most popular study features is our individual study pods. With 8 study pods located throughout the library (2 on the 3rd floor and 6 on the 4th floor), these pods offer a comfortable place to study or relax in a semi-private environment. Have you had a chance to try out a study pod?
