Arc Closed for Renovation

Arc LabThe Arc on Level A of Olin Library will close today for renovations associated with the Olin Library Transformation project. It will remain closed for the duration of summer and well into the fall 2017 semester.

 When the space reopens, users will find revamped and refreshed teaching and learning spaces. In close proximity and in time for the spring 2018 semester, they will also find the Newman Exploration Center, an open study and seating area connected to Whispers Café above, as well as two gender-inclusive restrooms and an infant nursing room.

Those who currently use the Macs in the Arc open lab will find some of the machines relocated to other levels of Olin for continued use during renovation. Macs will be dispersed among Levels B, 2, and 3.
