Study Spaces

Study spaces are available on all three floors of the Library; spaces are progressively quieter with each floor. Tables and various seating options, for group or individual study, are available on a first come, first served basis, and there are many locations with power outlets to charge your devices. There are also standing desks and a computer on a standing workstation if you want to avoid too much sitting.

Study rooms are available on the first and second floors; reservations are strongly encouraged.
