New electrical outlets

During spring and summer 2017, a total of 105 new electrical outlets were installed in the John C. Hitt Library.
Many are quads, meaning 4 devices can be plugged into the outlet. All have a USB connector. 9 are currently “in process”, almost completed. A few are “swap-outs”, replacing old outlets. But most are completely new, bringing power to seats where it was previously inaccessible.

24 outlets are on the 2nd (main) floor.
29 outlets are on the 3rd floor.
52 are on the 4th floor.

…Giving new meaning to our cheer “Go Knights! CHARGE ON!”

New Restroom

Now open: all restrooms

Work has been completed on the restrooms on the “Student Union side” of the John C. Hitt Library.

Restrooms on 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors have been updated and upgraded to be more accessible.

Thanks to everyone for their patience, with the noise, dust, and inconvenience. It is great to have new restrooms completed as work continues on the 21st Century Library project.
