Graduate Center Facilities
The Graduate Commons
Let's face it, sometimes you just need some time to kick back and relax, maybe even take a nap! In our 2000-sq. ft. Commons, you can do all of that and more.
This shared space provides an excellent opportunity to meet graduate students from outside of your lab, program, academic department, or college. It helps build social and support networks and forge friendships that may last a lifetime.
Entertain & Study
Three 70" flat screen TVs are equipped with Netflix and YouTube so there will be no boredom in your future... except perhaps for that daunting paper that you can also write sitting in those comfy armchairs we put in the Commons.
Arrange as you like
The best part of the Graduate Center is that almost everything is on wheels. The pace can be arranged to fit your needs and preferences and arrangements can change depending on what you would like to use the space for!
General Use Computer Lab - ATLC Grad Center
A fully equipped computer lab with seven PCs sporting 24" dual displays and two iMacs with 27" screens is perhaps what you have been looking for all along! All computers come with the full Texas Tech software suite, from SPSS and SAS to Adobe Creative Suite and Microsoft Office.
Research Computing Lab & Ultra Quiet Space
A fully equipped computer lab with eight PCs with dual displays and suite of software aimed at research including R, R Studio, LaTeX, Microsoft Office, and possibility to request additional software to be installed.
Right across from the Graduate Commons you can find coffee / dinning / study space equipped with cafe-styled tables and ample number of electrical outlets. This space features an alcove, a favority hiding spot for many of our guests. This room is an ideal spot to eat that lunch you just picked up at the SUB or a place to grab a cup of coffee with a friend.
Coffee & Relaxation Area
The coffee-shop-esque relaxation room features professional-grade massage chair. It is also a great place to meet fellow graduate students, or find a quiet corner where you can study or read that novel you have been promising yourself to finish for way too long!
