Nancy and George Putnam Student Lounge
A comfortably furnished student lounge is located on the 3rd floor of the Shouse Building. Refrigerators and microwave ovens are provided for the storage and heating of small meals. Self-service coffee and tea is also available throughout the day and evening. All Institute students share the responsibility for keeping the area clean. Although this area is primarily intended for quiet relaxation and conversation, students may, at their discretion, use this space for study.
Bulletin boards and email are the standard means by which the Institute communicates with students. Every student is assigned an Institute email account, which students are expected to monitor, as many official or time-sensitive notices are sent via email. The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) must approve all posting of signs by students on bulletin boards. Any student-posted material not approved by OSA will be removed.
Student Study Space
Collaborative and group study spaces are located on the fourth floor of the Shouse Building and in the Library and Study Commons on the fourth floor of building 38. The Library and Study Commons also has a quiet study area. All study spaces are open to students during building operating hours.
A fax machine available for student use can be found in the 3rd floor student workroom. It is the student's responsibility to pick up any incoming faxes in a timely manner.
Lockers are issued by the Office of Student Affairs to students as available. Full-time students receive preference for locker assignment. At the end of the academic year and summer term, students must empty their lockers regardless of whether or not they will be returning for the following semester.
Bicycle racks are located in the west alcove of the Shouse Building, and in four locations in the Constitution Center complex. Riders must provide their own locks. Neither the Institute nor building management is responsible for bicycle security. For $5/day, students can store their bikes in the secure bike cage inside the Navy Yard parking garage at Building 199.
