The Multipurpose Room (room 101) is located on the first floor of Newman Library behind the Study Café and between the CommLab and SCALE-UP Classroom. It was designed to accommodate a wide range of public events and activities, from film screenings and lectures, to receptions and exhibits. Our intention is to showcase programs that highlight learning, research, culture, and creativity.
The Multipurpose Room includes two 90-inch monitors at the front of the room and six 70-inch monitors around the perimeter. The technology package includes: DVD/Blu-Ray player, cable television, Apple TV, gaming systems, Polycom teleconferencing, videoconferencing, campus wireless connectivity, built-in speakers, microphones, and video cameras. A laptop, iPad, cables, and various adaptors are also available.
Virginia Tech faculty, staff, and officially recognized student groups may request the room for public events and programs; however, a library collaborator is highly encouraged. Library employees may request the room for various needs including workshops, webinars, forums, panels, video conferencing, training seminars, or related departmental functions.
