How do I reserve a study room?

Most of our study rooms are first come, first served. However, you can reserve rooms 225 and 231 for group study by calling the circulation desk at (254)968-9450, or by stopping by the desk. Click here for more information on study room policies.

My professor said that they put a book or article on reserve in the library. Where can I find it?

You can ask for it at the circulation desk in the lobby of the library. You can look up items that have been reserved by going to the Reserves section of the library catalog.

How much money do I get for printing each semester?

Each student gets $5.00 of printing credits each semester (including Summer). These credits do not roll over. After they are used up, students can use Texan Bucks for printing.
