In response to student needs and in support of programs such as the Educate Tomorrow program, the FAU Wimberly Library has created a space for students to reserve a quiet, private spot to take exams.
Students will be able to reserve a spot for up to two hours using an online form available here. Currently, we have nine private spots in a quiet area in the East Wing, first floor of the Wimberly Library. Students using this testing center will need to have their own laptop with the software required by their instructor already installed. At this time, no library staff will be available to assist with technical issues. This new space will be available beginning Wednesday, September 30. Students will need to book their private space ahead of time.
Those students who do not have their own laptop will be able to use one of the open computer workstations located in the two first-floor computer labs; availability of those computers can be viewed in real time here. The computers in the Wimberly Library’s computer labs have been enabled with webcams and LockDown Browser to enable students to use them for exam taking.
While in the library, all students must follow our policies about wearing face coverings at all times, practicing 6 feet of social distancing, and having no food or drink with them. For more information about what to expect when visiting the FAU Libraries, check out our website.
Wimberly Library hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Students taking exams are recommended to give themselves extra time to get set up prior to the start of their exam time.
