Hammer Building Classrooms 

The Hammer building contains dozens of classrooms scattered between Lower Level 1, Lower Level 2, 3rd floor, and 4th floor. Students are free to use these classrooms to meet or study whenever they are not reserved or in use. These rooms are generally open most of the day and night, although they are not technically 24 x 7 spaces. Several of these rooms contain computers (especially those on the two lower levels).

Hammer Computer Lab

The Computer Lab on the second floor of the Hammer Building has Windows and Macintosh computers, as well as color and black & white printers and a copier.  There is also a self-service kiosk to check out laptop computers.  The space is open 24/7, and there is a staffed CUMC IT service desk during daytime hours.

The Lounge is available around the clock to meet or study. It is equipped with a printer. Next door you will find the Recovery Room Cafe. The cafe has room to study as well as a microwave oven, a sink and drink vending machines. It is a good place to study and eat.

Both areas are located just inside the main entrance to Bard Hall.
