Learning Commons

Our Learning Commons is an open, welcoming space that offers students a variety of resources and spaces to serve their needs.  While we have quiet study areas on our 1st and 3rd floors, the main floor of the library supports students working and studying together.  You’ll also often find a variety of events scheduled in the Commons, from guest speakers to writing or art workshops.

Our whiteboard wall is a great place for large or small groups to study together; we provide the markers and you provide the thoughts/ideas/brainstorming/notes, etc!
