Need a place to join a remote class while you’re on campus? Want a safe and quiet place to study? We’ve got plenty of remote learning spaces where you can do just that. Each room is a shared space that has been reconfigured to accommodate physical distancing. Some are computer labs; in others, you will need to bring your own laptop if you need a computer. Please remember to bring your headphones (so as not to disturb others) and your mask.
The following are the designated remote learning spaces on campus during the initial remote learning period of the Spring 2021 semester (Jan. 19–Feb.14):
- Academic Commons 108, 110, and the Reese Cyber Café
- Nesbitt Library 201 and 210 (The library also has individual study rooms available.)
- Tech Center 20, 23, 101, 112, and the Atrium
Students may also use other computing labs and classrooms whenever a class is not in session. Every classroom and computer lab will have a calendar posted on the door, letting you know when it is free to use as a study space.
If you need a laptop with a camera and microphone, just submit a request to Penn State Mobile and you can borrow a laptop for free for the entire semester. You can also use on-campus computer labs to attend classes and meetings via Zoom. Read more about the technology available to you.
