Check out the great spaces available for studying between classes or after-hours.
ICICS boosts a variety of informal learning spaces to suit both group and individual study needs. Many of the spaces including the ICICS Atrium, X351 and the student study stairs have power for your laptops. You can purchase food and drinks at the Pacific Poke or snacks at the Computer Science Undergraduate office in 021. In addition, ten project rooms are also available for study use. These rooms are equipped with large LCD monitors to plug laptops into, a whiteboard (bring your own markers), and chairs for up to six people to work at a time. Students with a CS account can book the rooms for groups of 3 or more for up to 2 hours. Single students can use the room if a group isn't waiting.
Demco Learning Centre (ICICS X150)
The Demco Learning Centre provides drop-in help for students having difficulty with any of the concepts presented in class and for advice on assignments and projects in many CPSC courses. The DLC also provides space for students to study alone or in small groups.
