Fall Welcome 2020: Escape the Library: Home

This guide is for use and support of the Fall Welcome 2020 Library Orientation Activity.

Escape the Library

Welcome to Fall 2020 at UCSB! 

You may have guessed that the Library can help you succeed, but do you have the skills to escape in this 60 minute race against the clock?

Complete this virtual escape room solo or with a group of up to 4 people.

Not sure what an escape room is? Click here.
An escape room or escape game is where (usually) a team of players work together to solve puzzles in a themed environment to complete a mission - usually to "escape" the room.  This virtual escape room is done entirely online and creates a story where you are somehow caught in the library after closing.
