MSLC Facility and Directions Heading link

MSLC Facility

The physical MSLC space is a 9000+ square foot facility with dry erase walls and modular seating to accommodate small group study (plus an additional space for medium to larger groups).  The facility is divided by discipline so that each subject has a designated area making it easier for students to locate academic support.

The MSLC also has 12 desk-top computer stations for student use, plus printing stations, and Wi-Fi throughout the facility.  The MSLC also provides supplies for visitors to utilize when studying in the space (dry erase markers, general office supplies, etc.).

Directions to the MSLC

To find the MSLC, enter the West side of the Science and Engineering South (SES) Building (near the large lecture hall classrooms) and take the stairs or elevators to the 3rd floor.  The MSLC entrance is accessible from the 3rd floor elevator landing (and stairwell platform).  You may also navigate to the MSLC from the East side of SES by following the hallway signs from the Center of the building (rotunda) toward the 3rd floor wing with rooms in the 3100s range.
