What's a GPS Waypoint?

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 GPS Waypoint, you'll know that it's maintained as a study space.

Need other options? No problem!

General purpose classrooms are also available for individual and group study when not being used by a class or event. Check out the Astra Schedule Scheduling Calendar to see when rooms are available. A QR Code is posted outside all general purpose classrooms. Scanning it with your mobile device will bring you to today's schedule for the building. A great way to see if a room is available when you're on the go!

Don't get locked out! If you need to check on building hours, you can view the general purpose classroom hours of operation.
