NYU Libraries (Bobst & Dibner) Adaptive Technology Rooms
To reserve and use these rooms you must be registered with the Moses Center for Student Accessibility and receive access to the adaptive computing rooms as part of your accommodation package.
Reserving the rooms
Reservations are required to use the rooms and if provided the accommodation, your student ID can be used to swipe into the rooms. At the beginning of each semester, and then every Monday during the semester, the access list is updated. You will receive an email from NYU Libraries with further information about how and where to make the room reservations.
You are able to make up to 6 hours worth of reservation(s) within a 24 hour period. For example, you can make one 6 hour appointment, or three 2 hour appointments, or two 3 hour appointments.
Where to find the AT rooms
The rooms are located on Lower Level 1 (LL1) of Bobst Library behind the Bobst Library Computing Center (BLCC). Use the elevators 1 or 2 in the east elevator bank, on the ground floor of Bobst Library. Rooms are immediately on the left of the elevator on LL1.
