UTA Offices in Central Library

Central Library works with various University offices to offer services like technology support, student success, and faculty research in a convenient, central location. This equips students for academic and professional success and serves faculty's professional needs.

I.D.E.A.S. Center

The I.D.E.A.S. Center provides academic support for students in transition (transfers, sophomores, veterans, and first generation college students). Located in the Academic Plaza on the west side of the 2nd floor of the Central Library, students are able to walk in to receive Peer-to-Peer Mentoring and free Peer-to-Peer Tutoring. There are day, evening, and weekend hours; however, the space will be available for students to study individually and in groups during the Central Library’s regular hours.

University Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction

University Tutorial & Supplemental Instruction (UTSI) provides one-on-one, as well as group-based supplemental learning in the 2nd-floor Academic Plaza. Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of peer-assisted weekly study sessions designed to help students succeed in traditionally difficult courses.
