Central branch of the University of Texas Libraries on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin.
Books are not fresh but will satiate any appetite.
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!
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.
Men's 6th floor bathroom, far right urinal has a plethora of laughable grout puns.
Badass library but the smell of people eating a full course meal from chipotle is gross :/ so now I'm going to leave
The Ultimate Procrastination - Supposed to study I write haikus to pass time Procrastination's me
Coffee and books!
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 third floor is the new sixth floor, only with uncomfortable chairs.
ALWAYS opt for the handicapped door. #money
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.
Don't pull all nighters!
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
Avoid 6th floor if your tummy is grumbling. Everybody will hear you.
I should be studying instead of writing this tip!
If you want to actually get anything done, avoid the fifth floor. It's just a giant social hour.
The 4th Floor is the best if you're trying to get some independent studying done. Outlets for laptop charges is a plus
Find example business plans from graduate BP competitions 4th floor HD
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.
Third floor smells funky. Dislike!
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!
Bring your jacket, blanket, or snuggie. This place is a freezer.
Sixth floor = quiet floor
These books are in poses of genuflection, begging for me to flip their pages. Books, y'all better be patient. Watch out for people singing along to K-Pop on the sixth floor.
Have a crush on a librarian? Nominate them by Sept. 12 at
I loved to study here

Get a cubicle and you will get some ish done!
Thanks to all of those who in one way or another, made this happen!
Best place to work. Get my first borrowed book!
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.
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
Be careful with reserve items. Turn them in on time!
Bring snacks and make friends on the 5th floor!
bring an extension cord or surge protector if you want to find a seat easily.
Basement = frat floor.
Wear your bulletproof vest
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.
The smell right when you walk in... is divine.
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!
