Student Spaces: home

This guide tells you about the student spaces at the Jessie Ball duPont Library in Sewanee, Tennessee.

Study Carrels

There are a few hundred carrels throughout the library. Many are freely available on a first-come, first-served basis. Many others can be reserved with a partner for a semester at a time. The carrel sign-up is announced early each semester. For more information about carrels and carrel sign-ups, please call 598-1664.

Academic Technology Center

The Academic Technology Center (ATC) features an array of spaces and equipment for students to use. Chief among them are the lab, outfitted with approximately 50 well-appointed desktop computers,  and the "courtyard," a space with a variety of seating options to suit just about any work style.


Collaborative Spaces

The library has several spaces to offer small groups of students who need to work or study together. Most of the spaces are equipped with computing equipment and large displays. At least one or more spaces can be found on each floor of the library. Presently, these are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Students in the School of Theology have priority access to one of the group study rooms on the third floor of the building. If you have questions about using or reserving a room, please contact 598-1664.

Other Spaces to Work

In addition to carrels and designated group spaces, there are many tables throughout the building where you can work. We also offer several more comfortable spaces where you can can read, work, or relax.
