UC Study Breaks and Open Study Rooms:
For the past few years, the University Center (UC) has opened many of its meeting rooms for student use during study days and finals as open study spaces. This year, the UC will expand this service by opening the Denman Ballroom as an open study hall and launching “Study Breaks” with water, snacks and free chair massages on Thursday, December 13, 2012. The Denman Ballroom will be open for studying from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. with snacks and massages offered from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and again from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
“We wanted to give back to our students, and providing some snacks and open study spaces seemed like the best way to show our appreciation for all that students do to support our facility,” said Herb Ganey, interim director of the UC.
Open study rooms will be available from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Sundays from December 10 – 18 unless previously scheduled for an event or meeting. Study rooms that were previously booked for a meeting will have signs posted indicating they are temporarily unavailable. The following meeting rooms will be open for study use:

- Rooms will not be locked to hold your items if you choose to leave a room.
- Be respectful of others using the study room
- Remove your trash and replace chairs at the end of your study session.
