Mathskeller: Math Resource Center

 

The Mathskeller is located in CB63, which is next to the loading dock in the basement of White Hall Classroom Building. Open 9AM-5PM, Monday through Friday, Mathskeller is a place for any UK student to come get free tutoring, no appointment necessary. Tutors are available for students in 100-level math courses, and have excellent knowledge of math, since they are math graduate students, professors, and math majors at University of Kentucky. Many of the math Professors for 100 level classes at UK even hold their office hours in the Mathskeller.

The Mathskeller offers flexible, comfortable furniture and amenities for students to arrange to meet their group study needs, including chalkboards, a private meeting space (the Klein Room) and a small kitchen.
