Students at UTSA have mounted a fairly intensive campaign for the
administration to provide various 24-hour facilities - general study areas,
library access and PC labs. As part of our research, we'd like to know what
other schools are doing. We are already providing 24-hour PC lab access and
a 24-hour study area during the last two weeks of every semester. I'd
appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to answer the following
Please respond to me directly and not to the list. I will be happy to
compile a summary of responses and share with those that are interested.
Thanks in advance for your help. Also, I apologize for duplicate messages,
but I'm posting this to several lists.
1. Does your campus presently offer any 24-hour facilities for
a. General study areas.
b. Library access.
c. Public student PC labs.
d. Food services.
e. Other - please specify.
-> Yes - Computer labs in Residence Halls.
2. If "yes" to any part of question one, for each facility
a. Does that access include weekends (i.e., 24x7)?
b. Is access provided all semester or just during the end-of-semester
-> All semester
c. Is any special funding (fee, allocation, etc.) provided for this
-> No... included in overall technology access policy.
d. What security arrangements are provided?
-> Residence hall room keys enable access to the labs.
e. Do you require presentation of ID cards for access?
-> Students are required to present them, upon request.
3. Are you planning to provide (or expand availability of) 24-hour
facilities in the near future? If so, please describe what you're thinking.
-> Yes. For Fall 2001, opening at least one large lab on each campus, using a key/card system.
4. Please list any other comments, concerns or suggestions you might
share regarding 24-hour facilities.
