The Practice Room , room 636 in the 6th floor computing lab of the Library/Technology Building, is available to Baruch College students to practice their class presentations using the same technology (podium, projector, computer) that is found in Baruch’s smart classrooms.

You can borrow the key for the room at the Newman Library circulation/reserve desk. The keys are charged out for a 1-hour loan or until 10 minutes before the desk closes, whichever is earlier. Groups are allowed one renewal (for the same loan period), if no other group is waiting.
