20 Powered Study Tables Added on Level 4 in PCL

Twenty new powered study tables with new chairs have just been installed on Level 4 in PCL.  In January, new powered study tables and new chairs were added on Level 6.

In total, there are now 320 comfortable seats at these 40 tables, with ready access to multiple outlets.  Each table accommodates 8 chairs and features 12 outlets.

We invite you to take a look and find a new favorite study spot for the summer!

Mac VGA adapters now available for checkout in PCL

Given the popularity of our PCL Presentation Practice Rooms and the need for Mac laptop users to have an adapter to connect to the MediaScape units and flat screen TVs, we now have 6 Mac VGA adapters available at the PCL Check Out Desk.

MediaScape audio connectors are also available for check out for the MediaScape units in PCL 1.380 and PCL 4.110.

Each of these items is available for 24 hour check out.

New group study rooms, presentation practice rooms, furniture, and electrical outlets in PCL!!

You asked and we listened!

The 6th floor of PCL now features:

  • 18 new tables with 12 outlets per tables, for a total of 216 new outlets
  • 8 seats per table for a total of 144 new chairs
  • Before these changes, about 20% of the 6th floor seats had access to power — now it’s over 50%

There are also 42 new outlets installed on the 4th floor, along the SE and SW windows.  We’ve put chairs and small tables by all of those windows to make the outlets more useful.

We’ve also added two new group study rooms, PCL 3.110 and PCL 3.106.  PCL 3.106 is a presentation practice room with a TV in it.  Additionally, PCL 6.106 and PCL 4.110 are new presentation practice rooms.  PCL 6.106 has a TV on the wall and PCL 4.110 will have a Media Scape system installed by the end of the day today.

These new group study and presentation practice rooms will soon be added to the online Group Study Reservation Site.

Welcome back and have a great semester!
