Please Respect Project Rooms

Please remember that many generous donors paid for the first and second floor project rooms of Austin Hall so that students would have a private and secure place to study. Be respectful of their kindness and leave the project rooms as you found them, if not better. If you see any project rooms being tampered with, please report it to the employee at the second floor helpdesk, or email our office at: We also we want to remind students of the following:

  • The thin client computers require a dedicated server in order to operate and have no value by themselves
  • The project rooms are monitored with cameras and student access to the project rooms is recorded
