About the University Residences Support Centers (URSC)

University Residences has two support centers, one in Shreve Hall and the other in Cary Quadrangle. Both are study centers for academic purposes only. The support centers are ideal if you need a quiet place to study or work on a paper, a place to meet with a group for a class project or a place to take a virtual exam. If you have other non-academic needs, please contact your resident assistant (RA) or hall clerk. You can also email the Smalley Center office for assistance.
