Conference and Presentation Areas

Polytechnic Conference

Students are able to schedule to use the Barrett conference room for group project meetings, thesis meetings, etc. The presentation areas in the student lounge are also available to schedule, should a student want to hold their thesis defense in the space. Space requests should be made with a minimum of two weeks notice and are subject to availability and approval.

Student Computer Lab with Free Printing

Polytechnic Lab

Barrett students on the Polytechnic campus have access to the Student Computer Lab within the Barrett Suite. This lab is equipped with both iMac and PCs, as well as scanning and free printing. The lab is open during normal business hours (8am to 5pm Monday-Friday) with additional availability during open lounge hours.

The Lounge

Polytechnic Lounge

The most popular place for Barrett students to gather on the Polytechnic campus is the Barrett Lounge. With a combination of work surfaces and relaxation areas, the lounge has multipurpose functionality to fit our students' needs - from eating lunch with friends, to collaborating on group projects. Students have access to the lounge during normal business hours (8am to 5pm Monday-Friday) with additional time during open lounge hours. In addition, Barrett Polytechnic hosts several student engagement events in the lounge throughout the year. Students have opportunities to attend receptions with visiting lecturers, participate in thesis workshops, as well as scholarship and internship information sessions. The space is also utilized for student-organized activities, such as club meetings and movie/game nights, and serve as a key way for honors students to connect with their peers for a well-rounded undergraduate experience that promotes not only success in the classroom, but also involvement in the community.

Thesis Library

Students who want to learn more about the thesis/creative project are encouraged to peruse our thesis library, which features the work of past Barrett Polytechnic students. While these may not be removed from the Barrett offices, students can also access the Digital Repository from anywhere to view past thesis/creative projects by students from all four campuses dating back to Spring 2013 (earlier projects are housed in physical libaries at the different Barrett campuses). Students utilizing the digital repository will need to click "Sign In" on the upper-right-hand corner of the page to gain access.

Lenore Brady Lending Library

Need a break? Come relax in the Barrett Lounge with a good book from the Lenore Brady Lending Library. Students can read in the lounge, or see the Barrett front desk to check out a book to take with them.
