Room 8010 is located on the 8th floor of Davis Library. This study space has flexible furniture and comfy chairs for individual or group study. It offers lots of natural light and spectacular views of the campus.
The Research Hub Cubes on the 2nd floor seat 4 to 8 people. Groups may reserve them and have priority over individual users. These semi-enclosed spaces are intended for collaborative work, so a certain level of noise should be expected. Quieter spaces for study are available on floors 4-8 of Davis Library.
Collaboration tables accommodate up to 4 people. These tables feature large, mounted displays for sharing your laptop screen with others.
The tables offer HDMI and Mini DisplayPort connections. USB-C adapters are available for checkout at the 1st floor service desk.
Please note: Groups may reserve these tables and have priority over individual users. The Davis Library Research Hub offers consultations and spaces for collaborative work, so a certain level of noise should be expected. Quieter spaces for study are available on floors 4-8 of Davis Library.
The Fifth Floor Lounge has comfortable seating, small tables, and four treadmill desks with views of campus. The treadmill desks have adjustable speed and height.
A generous allocation from the UNC Summer School was used to purchase the desks, which are available on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the year.
