New Study Space Now Open

The College of Medicine recently completed renovations for a new study room for medical students. The new space is located on the second floor of the William R. Willard Medical Science Building. MS 233, a former Histology lab, has been transformed into an inviting, bright, and airy space for students to read and study. These renovations came as result of feedback from students about the need for modern, secure, and collaborative study space with natural lighting. Upgrades for the 2,716 square foot space began earlier this year in May and were completed in November. The room can accommodate more than 100 students and allows for studying in small groups or solo work.  The room features an open floor plan with a mixture of table, workstation, and seating options. Café seating, individual study carrels, and an abundance of white boards and power outlets are just a few of the amenities of the new space. The study room is open 24 hours a day and is accessible to all first through fourth-year medical students. Access is controlled by a badge swipe at its entrance. More seating will be added to the study room in the spring of 2017 to further foster academic success and meet the growing needs of our students.
