Walking Study Stations at Health Sciences Library

The UMKC Health Sciences Library now offers two treadmill desk stations in our new Active Study Room. Each low-speed Walkstation has an adjustable-height desk, allowing library users to walk while they read, study, write, or participate in an online class or meeting.

The Walkstations are located in the Active Study Room on the south side of the Health Sciences Library, facing large windows overlooking the Health Sciences Campus quad. The room was formerly dominated by a large conference table and was called the Gustave Eisemann Reading Room; we are excited to reimagine this room in ways that support the physical and mental wellbeing of UMKC library users. A standing desk is also available in the Active Study Room, one of several placed throughout the library.

The Walkstations are available to anyone when the library is open. Walkers should limit their time at a station if others wish to use it. The Health Sciences Library, located on the second floor of the School of Medicine Building, serves students in all UMKC Health Sciences District academic programs. If you do not currently have ID card access to the building to utilize the Health Sciences Library, you can sign up here.
