Computer labs and student study space

To support our students’ need for a reliable and quiet place to work, HL 190 is open as a dedicated study space. A number of computer labs are open in Old Main and are listed on our Campus Services and Spaces page. All of these rooms have been arranged to allow for physical distancing and are locations where a member of our safety ambassador team is stationed to help encourage safety protocols.

Indoor air quality

On-campus, we are monitoring air quality due to smoke from wildfires in our buildings and have installed air scrubbers in high traffic areas. Our smoke management plan typically calls for the recirculation of indoor air but due to COVID-19, more air is being brought in from outside, increasing the smoke and the need for the air scrubbers to clean the air indoors.
