The Zoo, on the third floor of Watson Hall, is a place for computer science students to work and collaborate. The zoo houses 38 computers, each named after a different animal. There's also a fridge and espresso machine on the second floor to fill your noshing needs. Check the diagram above to see which computers are available.

The Zoo website and facilities are maintained by ITS; shoot them an email if you have questions!
