   Most resources and services on campus are still up and running with limited restrictions. 

   For those wanting to get tested for COVID-19 after being selected for CUNY’s random testing program, interacting with infected patients, or exhibiting symptoms, Brooklyn College’s testing site is now located in the basement of Boylan Hall, Room 0400B. The site will operate on Mondays from 9 AM to 2 PM, Tuesdays through Thursdays from 2 PM to 7 PM, and on Fridays from 10 AM to 2 PM. It will not be open during weekends. 

    BC’s library will have the same operating hours this spring. Study spaces are available upon request at each floor’s help desk. From Monday to Thursday, the library will be open from 8 AM to 8:45 PM. On Fridays, it’ll operate from 8 AM to 4:45 PM, with the weekend hours running from 12 PM to 5:45 PM. The library’s cafe located in Whitehead Hall is also open this spring, but will not be open during the weekend. If in need of peer tutoring, the Learning Center is located on Boylan Hall’s first floor, course-specific and writing tutoring will return in person this spring. 

    Study nooks are also located on the first floor of the West End Building (WEB) and upper floors of James Hall. 

   Several identity-based clubs and student-led initiatives are housed in WEB. Literary publications like Stuck In The Library and The Junction are based in Boylan Hall. The Student Center building’s game room has returned on the first floor, where the college’s testing site previously ran. Student governments, the LGBTQ Center, and other student organizations such as Greek Council are located in the Student Center, or SUBO.
