Marston Science Library - Building Updates

This page provides information on major construction projects in the Marston Science Library that may impact the experience of our visitors

Marston's 4th and 5th floors are being fully renovated! 

That means power outlets everywhere, new furniture, the works! It is very exciting and we ask for your patience with the disruptions the construction will inevitably cause. 

New Makerspace

3D printing and makery services will be consolidated into the MADE@UF room on the 1st floor. New layout, new furniture, and new imaginings await!

New study rooms 

3D and makery spaces are being moved to the 1st floor and their current space on the 2nd floor will be renovated to provide more study rooms. 

Room and floor closures

The 4th and 5th floors are closed during construction. 

L136 (the 1st floor conference room) is also closed while the new makery is being renovated. 

When will the construction be completed? 

Tentative reopening dates. Subject to change, of course. 

  • September - 3rd floor (reopened Sept. 12th - yay!)
  • November - 4th floor
  • December - 5th floor

Where can I study?

The 1st floor (basement) and 2nd floor (the one you walk in on) will remain open. The 3rd floor reopened on September 12th. 

Where can I find quiet study spaces? 

Sorry, Marston is likely to be a noisy place until construction is completed. Try the AFA LibraryLibrary West, LACC or Newell Hall. 

How do I get a book from the 4th floor?

Ask at the service desk. Evening staff members will retrieve the items for you after the construction crews have left. You can pick up the items at the desk the next day. They will be held for you for one week. .
