Faculty Lounges

One of the Faculty Lounges is located in room 6.612, Clinical Services Wing (CSW).  From the Jennie Sealy Lobby, take the main public elevator to the 6th floor.  Once you arrive to the 6th floor, take a left.  Make your way down the hall until you reach the Faculty Lounge, on the left side of the hallway.  It has Starbucks coffee, hot chocolate, tea bags and hot water.  Right next to the lounge is vending machines and sandwich shop. 

The other Faculty Lounge is located in the John Sealy Annex adjacent to the Café on the Court.  The room is just off the main dining room and labeled Faculty Lounge and accessible for Faculty using your ID badge.  The lights are activated by a motion sensor, so one has to walk into the room to activate the lights if they are off.
