We offer diverse options for well-being while you work in Strauss Library. Try one of our walk or bike stations instead of a study room. There are three walk stations on the first floor of the library, one in the Study Zone on the second floor, and two walk stations on the third floor. There is a bike station on each floor of the library. The bike station on the second floor is next to a pull-up station if you really want to test yourself.
