    Hard to find a table or a desk near an outlet. Computer dies fast when it isn't plugged in all day

    The first, second and third floor have been renovated. Looks nice, but if your looking for a really quiet place to study basement all the way to the back is the best spot to go.

    The second floor was recently renovated and looks very nice.

    Filthy woman's bathroom on first floor...

    Women's bathroom on first floor was one of the dirtiest I've ever been in...

    4th Floor is the best quiet spot, bring a hoodie!

    It is always freezing. Dress warm.

    I love the library. It is awesome. Go here.

    The second floor used to be cool, and now they remodeled it. I'm sure it looks good in brochures and on tours for prospective students- but it's function is honestly a joke. They need more tables.

    Around 12pm computers are always filled so try and come a little early

    You never win on the 2nd floor.. 5th floor cubicals: discover test banks

    Avoid the front of the library because series there are these guys who like to preach all kids of different beliefs and it can get pretty unholy of there are two that have disagreements!

    Austen Johannessen · January 17, 2013
  • Austen J.

    Get here early and get a study room because its hard to find a quiet place to talk!

    Austen Johannessen · January 16, 2013
  • Kelli W.

    Love the new 2nd Floor! Also 4th floor is quiet to study, but Really Cold!!

    Kelli Wilson · December 10, 2012

    The second floor is entirely renovated with 100s of computers and tons of study tables and couches. Better than the first floor.

    The 3rd floor is the best

    'Change in the Air' my ass. STILL do not sit in front of the library unless you want lung cancer.

    Just leave. You know you'd rather have a beer.

    Kat S · April 18, 2012
  • Jose R.

    Bring headphones even if you're in the study rooms because the walls are paper thin.

    Don't use the elevators they are a death trap waiting to happen

    The IT people are miracle workers. Fast & smart & polite. Young people with great futures.

    The Trevi Fountain even thinks there are too many people trying to sell crap outside of this building

    Perfect way to piss the janitor off is going inside the bathroom when theres a wet floor sign up next to it..

    Devin Spavale · February 1, 2012
  • Vanessa A.

    Don't forget to bring a hoodie. It feels like an igloo inside!!!

    Practically live in the starbucks!

    If you donate antique weapons, make sure they're demilitarized. Nobody wants explosives in Special Collections, as they can reduce the lifespan of fragile things such as incunabula and archivists.

  • Kinwo M.

    The sixth floor is not limited "super quiet studying", it seconds as the best place to take a nap. Thank me later :)

    Kinwo Mui · November 30, 2011
  • Andrew C.

    The computers on the first floor are crap.

    Andrew Colombani · November 22, 2011
  • Lulu P.

    I you want to talk in the library, do it on the 1st floor. Do not take your baby mama drama phone calls on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th floor. It's finals week give me a fucking break!

    Lulu Pearson · November 21, 2011
  • Ramy B.

    Take a nap in the basement.

    Ramy Boules · November 17, 2011
  • Amanda M.

    There is no such thing as a 'quick print' here. Better to use the print lab on the 4th floor of Cooper.

    Amanda M · November 17, 2011
  • Rachel M.

    6th floor for "super quiet" study area.

    Rachel Mailliard · November 15, 2011
  • Rhondel W.

    The 5th Floor is perfect for studying, not too cold, not too warm

    Rhondel Whyte · November 8, 2011
  • Eli W.

    If you want someplace really quiet, the very back of the basement is a good study spot!

    Eli W · November 8, 2011
  • Mary G.

    Use your daily allowance of prints

    Mary Ghazarian · November 5, 2011
  • Amanda M.

    Printers are soooooo slow!

    Forgot a pencil? Hit up the vending machine by the entrance on the first floor. It dispenses school supplies!

    Thirsty? Fill your water bottle with filtered water at the hydration station on the first floor of the Library!

    Get your study on in Club LIB after hours! The USF Tampa Library is open 24 hours Monday through Thursday for students.

    Bring a sweater. It's awfully cold in here.

    Cat Desharnais · August 30, 2011
  • Spencer B.

    Just grow a pair and go to the basement to study..

    Spencer Brooks · August 8, 2011
  • Christina A.

    2nd floor is the best place to study. Not cold and always quiet. 5th floor is really stuffy.

    Christina Allen · July 13, 2011
  • Jay B.

    The basement??? Hmm sounds legit!

    Jay Barreto · June 1, 2011
  • Shaune R.

    The basement is sooooo cold! Don't go there.

    Shaune Reynolds · April 3, 2011

    Any coffee addicts... Starbucks is not open today in the library

    Nicolle Val · March 3, 2011
  • Carlos E.

    All 5 floors are now open after midnight during 24 hour nights. Enjoy not being cramped with everyone on the 1st floor anymore.
