Library and Reflecting Pond

Noise alert: Main (2nd) floor in the Knowledge Commons

Construction of a door to the Automated Retrieval Center has begun at the back of the Knowledge Commons on the 2md (main) floor.
To seek a quieter environment, library classrooms 235A and 235C are open for study. These are located off Infusion, the café area. Areas in the front of the building (Reflecting Pond side), on 3rd and 4th floor may be out of the noisy area.
Earplugs are available at the Circulation Desk if the noise is a challenge.
We apologize for this inconvenience.

Search for the item you would like in the UCF catalog and click on Place a Hold in the bottom right corner of the record.

A path remains open to the LibTech Desk
from the “Bank of 2 elevators” and North and East stairs.
Only one elevator remains open in the “Bank of 3” elevators on the south side of the building as work continues on the other 2 elevators.

The west stairwell is currently closed. All others are open.

Work continues on the 1st and 2nd floor restrooms. Restrooms on 2M, the restrooms on the Student Union side of 3rd floor, 4th floor, and 5th floor remain open.
