Find study space

GPS Waypoints are General Purpose Study spaces that you'll find on your way around campus. They are designed, managed, and maintained by the Office of Classroom Management with student needs in mind. When you find a gold push pin marking a study space, you'll know that it's maintained as a study space.

If you have questions, issues, or have a great idea for a study space, we want to know about it.
