UF students have access to state-of-the-art technology and collaborative learning spaces 24/7.

The newly renovated Newell Hall features movable, tech-friendly furniture, with outlets on nearly every piece. Reitz Union also has more than 20 new conference rooms and study spaces that students can reserve at no charge. Need to create a video for a class or club project? Library West’s One Button Studio is easy to use and also free. Built by UFIT, the One Button Studio is equipped with state-of-the-art camera, lighting, audio, and green screen equipment. All that’s needed to record a video is a flash drive.

“UFIT regularly works with the UF’s Smathers Libraries and the Division of Student Affairs to get the technology students need to collaborate digitally and in person, in more and more places where students need it on campus,” said Mark McCallister, interim director of Academic Technology.

More options: Collaboration Commons, located in Marston Science Library’s (MSL) basement, features a visualization wall, 3-D printing and scanning, and super high-tech study rooms.
