You got: You got the First Floor!

Our first floor has a café like atmosphere – talking and snacks are definitely allowed! This floor is one of our busiest and is packed with tons of resources for students. There are 68 individual computer stations, including 6 Macs, as well as 11 group workstations with extra-large monitors. The first floor also houses the Research Center where our librarians can answer questions about finding books, navigating the academic databases, or assisting with any step in the research process. The Circulation Desk is also located on this floor and students can check out library materials like books, study rooms, and electronic equipment like iPads, laptops, and digital cameras.

You got: You got the Workout Rooms!

Like to move while you study or take breaks to exercise? The library has multiple workout areas as well as conveniently located near Putnam Park. On sunny days, be sure to check out the gorgeous tree lined trails along the river. For those late night study breaks or days when the weather isn’t so great, McIntyre has a workout room on the third floor with a treadmill, exercise bike, and an elliptical. On the second floor, there are also three FitDesks with attached tables for laptops and books for students who like to study on the move!

You got: You got the Group Study Rooms!

We have twenty-two private study rooms scattered throughout the library that can hold groups ranging from 1-10 people. Most of the rooms are equipped with computers and large screens to accommodate students working on group projects or presentations. These rooms are available for check out at the circulation desk for up to two hours. While it is usually very quick and easy to check out a study room throughout the semester, be sure to plan ahead around finals week – our study rooms are very popular!

You got: You got the Silent Floors (4th or 5th)!

For students who need it to be extra quiet while they study, the fourth and fifth floors of McIntyre are for you! These floors are designated silent floors where there is no talking or music allowed. While library staff members do not continuously monitor the noise level, those studying on these floors do maintain the silent atmosphere. So if potato chips are your favorite study snack, you may want to eat them before coming up to these floors!
