UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz School is pleased to announce the opening of the ADAS Student Lounge on Tuesday, September 15. The Lounge, located on the first floor in the south-east corner of the just-opened Education Building, will be accessible to students at any time of the day of night and give them a comfortable on-campus “home” for research and study.

Highlights of the lounge include state-of-the-art technology including wireless access, four 20" iMac computers that can run OS X or Windows, a G5 with VHS/minDV deck for video projects, a video conference unit for 1-2 people, and a laser printer. The new ADAS is designed to be open and airy with lots of natural light. It features new resources and a new look and feel, including new furniture such as two booths that can seat four people, two large circular tables, individual work areas, and student lockers.
“We are excited to give students such an inviting and pleasant place to study and meet in study groups,” Gevirtz School Assistant Dean Arlis Markel says about the room. “The new lab is easily accessible, with plenty of light, updated technology, and comfortable new furniture. We hope students will check it out and know they will make good use of the space.”
Gevirtz School students may enter the room by using their building access card. Students without an access card should see Lisa Lopez in Education 4113 to get their cards.
