The Downtown Campus library is a full-service location. Students will receive in-person assistance from the Valencia College or UCF librarian. If you’re a Valencia College student, you’ll be able to utilize Valencia College materials and library databases. However, only Valencia College students whose program of study is downtown, will be able to checkout library materials from UCF. Please note that there will be limited access when borrowing laptop computers from the library. In addition, it will not house study rooms, although other parts of the building will have study rooms available.

The Downtown Campus Library does not have study spaces and we do not reserve rooms. However, there are numerous spaces and rooms for students use for for study and collaborative work throughout the Downtown Campus. There are four types of spaces with three different ways to schedule:
In most instances, students may occupy a space as long as it is not in use.
At times, students will need to borrow or access laptop computers. The DTC library does not provide these devices. However, the UCF Tech Lending (DPAC, 2nd Floor), will have devices available for students to borrow. This UCF link will describe the types of devices a student can borrow from Tech Lending: UCF Libraries-Tech Lending. When searching their website for available resources/devices, make sure search by the Downtown (DTC) Library. You may also specify what tech type you are seeking.
Students may borrow laptop computers from Tech Lending for a loan period of 3 days or 7 days. When a student is returning a device as long as Tech Lending has 25% of devices in stock, students will be allowed to renew the loan. If the inventory is low, students will be asked to return the device the next day to give others a chance to borrow equipment.
Students will need their new DTC ID cards in order to check out equipment. Tech Lending is open Monday - Thursday, 8am - 9pm and Friday, 8am - 4pm.
