A few tips for campus visitors from the Niles Gallery manager

Greetings, everyone,

I spend about a fourth of my time in the building that is hosting THATCamp, so I’d like to share a few tips for guests to campus.  First, since things are a little slower during the summer, you can probably save a few bucks on parking by checking out some of the neighborhood streets.    The X is the Little Library, and the blue lines run along streets with free parking.  Just make sure you’re not in the yellow paint areas.

If you’re looking to get a cup of coffee, you can visit the Starbucks in the Student Center from 7:30 to 3:00 and Young Library from 8:00 to 2:00 pm.  I’ve never actually measured the distance, but the Student Center feels closer to Little than Young.  There’s also a little cafe just a few buildings over in the Office Tower with some good self-serve options.

We have vending machines on the third floor.  Use of the Niles Gallery includes access to a microwave and refrigerator.  The library can loan you a locker if you want to stash anything between camp sessions.  If you’re within a stone’s throw of a campus building, you can typically get a wireless signal from the ukyedu network.

If you have any random questions about campus or the library system, please feel free to send them my way at .
