When you need some quiet time to study, or a new book, or just a cup of coffee — Sterne Library is the place to go! You’ll also find the INTO UAB Center, our home for anything related to international students, and the University Writing Center to help with everything from your English 101 paper or even your senior project. “Club Sterne” as we call it, is open 24/5 (with dedicated security after 8pm) and has limited hours during the weekend.
