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.
