Exercise Desks Coming to the Library!

Due to the requests of students, the library will be installing one treadmill desk and three bike desks (two designs) on the 5th floor this month. Usage will be monitored to determine the most popular options for possible future expansion.

     

Fresh Food and Coffee Vending Now Available

The long-awaited fresh food and coffee vending machines have arrived at Briscoe Library and are now available for use! Located on the 3rd floor next to The Hub, the three brand new vending machines contain snacks, a selection of fresh food and drinks, and coffee. While the coffee machine can only accept cash for the time being (only $1.50 a cup!), the snack and fresh food machines accept both cash and credit card.

These vending machines are accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year so you’ll never go hungry or thirsty again!

Did you know that you can exercise and study at the same time?

Well, now you can, and you will have a great view of our beautiful campus!

There are 3 exercise bikes with attached desk-tops that can be used night or day, 24/7/365.

Standing power hubs are also available to charge your phone or laptop while you are exercising.
