Access to Library Resources

Welcome to the Architecture Library

 All students, Staff and Faculty associated with the Real Estate Development program have 24/7 access to the library with their  ID card.

  1. Treat this like a National Park - whatever you pack in, you pack out. We are the built Environment School and that goes for our own school. We need to take care of this place.
  2. In the library you will find:

    1. Public computers.
    2. 2 study rooms.
    3. Periodicals - magazines - journals!
    4. Books related to Real Estate
    5. Reference Shelf Cost Estimators.
    6. Copier, scanner, printer. 
    7.  Research assistance from the Librarian and the staff. 
    8. Studying space in one of our group study rooms, or at one of our tables and chairs. We have public desktop computers for you to use.
