Students, faculty and staff are welcome to visit and study in the new L-11 Testing Center!

A recently completed renovation on the 11th floor of the Alumni Medical Library now provides a state-of-the-art, 220 seat testing center

Renovations include a new ceiling with improved sound-proofing qualities, energy-efficient lighting, new carpeting and flooring, newly painted walls, new chairs and tables with power outlets at every seat, and club seating and cube tables in the hallway outside the floor-to-ceiling glass walls of the testing center.  The heating and air conditioning system was upgraded, and a more powerful wireless system is provided throughout the testing center, as well as some wired network connections.


The testing center is equipped with a video monitoring system and audio system for proctor announcements.  The testing center serves a dual-purpose as student study space when not reserved for exams.


Medical Library Computing & Systems offices are located in L-1109, and staff will provide on-site technical support for student laptops and laptop loaners during exams.  A new state-of-the-art computer classroom with 26 PCs will also serve as a public computing lab when classes and exams are not scheduled.  A Coffee/Vending Lounge includes additional club seating, group study tables, PC’s, a scanner and print release station and is available for use when exams are not scheduled.  The elevator lobby was renovated and a new LCD monitor and signage have been installed throughout the floor.


Three elevators, including the express elevator, have been programmed to stop on L-11, and emergency stairwell access to L-11 is also available Monday – Friday 7:00 am – 7:00 pm.
