Central branch of the University of Texas Libraries on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin.
A go-to for any student at UT (remember your UT ID past 10pm). Tons of seating on all the floors, but get there early in the day during finals if you want a table. Reserve study rooms online!
The best place to study is..5th floor. But people talk on that floor so...not much studying usually commences lol!
Get yo work done
Basement = frat floor.
The smell right when you walk in... is divine.
bring an extension cord or surge protector if you want to find a seat easily.
Bring your jacket, blanket, or snuggie. This place is a freezer.
Get a cubicle and you will get some ish done!
Basement is the place to be.
The PCL is named for Dr. Ervin S. Perry, the University’s first African-American professor, and Dr. Carlos E. Castañeda, a professor & a developer of UT's Benson Latin American Collection.
The First Floor is a great place to study and there are good magazines available.
I should be studying instead of writing this tip!
Use the quiet study room... Quietly
If you get a study room on a quiet floor, don't forget that everyone outside isn't talking, so don't be loud!
DO NOT LEAVE UR STUFF UNATTENDED. not speaking from a personal experience but it always happens. gotta go to the restroom? pack everything up and take it with u.
im learning so fucking much now! books on books up here; whatcha want? they got it. want to charge your laptop? only the first floor has them. cons: apparently your shit gets stolen every 30 mins
Wear your bulletproof vest
Don't pull all nighters!
If you want to actually get anything done, avoid the fifth floor. It's just a giant social hour.
If you want to study, avoid the PCL. It's a great place to socialize and meet your classmates' friends. You won't get much work done but it's fun as hell! Bring food and extension cords.
Go online to the libraries page and request group study rooms!! They're awesome. Reserve them 2 weeks before finals to make sure you get one! Combine with friends to reserve one all day/night.
Men's 6th floor bathroom, far right urinal has a plethora of laughable grout puns.
The Ultimate Procrastination - Supposed to study I write haikus to pass time Procrastination's me
I loved to study here
Bring snacks and make friends on the 5th floor!
6th floor is actually a quiet one. Plus there are new more ergonomic chairs than the usual chairs you'd expect at a school library. And always bring a sweater.
Bring a sweater/jacket/snuggie/etc. It gets cold sometimes
get yo study on
Best place to hookup!!! Get busy in the stacks........ With books
The 4th Floor is the best if you're trying to get some independent studying done. Outlets for laptop charges is a plus

Be careful with reserve items. Turn them in on time!
You don't have to be a student to get a card! I love texas! Must have austin card to get courtesy card and fee is waived!
Go across the street to b-school 4th floor if you really wanna get work done
Studying all day everyday
Need to focus, make a reservation for a room and you'll get a whole lot done than you expected
They have many leather-bound books.
Scanning is so easy and fast at the PCL!
24/7 as of today.
Win prizes and bragging rights as the Mayor of PCL on Foursquare! Details available at
Take advantage of the study rooms. They're super helpful if you have a group and need to get work done. Just reserve one online.
Badass library but the smell of people eating a full course meal from chipotle is gross :/ so now I'm going to leave
Coffee and books!
The third floor is the new sixth floor, only with uncomfortable chairs.
ALWAYS opt for the handicapped door. #money
Avoid 6th floor if your tummy is grumbling. Everybody will hear you.
