The LBJ Student Center at Texas State will extend its hours to accommodate students studying for final exams.

A venue for study in a space more commonly used for recreation is just one of the ways Texas State is adapting to the final exam period.

Starting Sunday, Dec. 4, the LBJ Student Center opened a Quiet Study Zone on its third floor where students may retreat for individual study from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Other areas of the building are open for small group study and discussion.

The extended hours at LBJ — prompted in part by a power outage that forced limited operating hours at Alkek Library — will continue through Dec. 13.

To kick off the final exam period, the student center will host Late Night at LBJ beginning at midnight tonight, Dec. 7, when in addition to study space students may find complimentary snacks and beverages in LBJ. The event follows two others designed to ease the end-of-semester strain, including Monday’s Massages on the Go and Tuesday’s Fall Moonlight Breakfast.

Library hours

Those wishing to prepare for final exams or complete other end-of-semester assignments in Alkek Library may do so during the following hours:

  • Monday, Dec. 5 through Tuesday, Dec. 13 — 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Dec. 14 — 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Thursday, Dec. 15 — 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Friday, Dec. 16 — 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Computer Labs

Additionally, students who require computer lab space can find facilities and their operating hours here.
