Learning Commons Group Study Rooms
The Learning Commons (LC) staff are proud to offer students group study rooms, as well as group study areas, throughout the first floor West Tower space. Please consider:
- Groups are given priority and are given the right to ask a single person using a room to leave. If you are uncomfortable asking a student to leave please ask a staff member in the Service Hub - also known as the hallway that connects the two parts of the LC.
- Group Study rooms throughout the Learning Commons are available on a first come, first served basis. The LC staff have tried a variety of room structure combinations and have found that the rooms are used more widely and most efficiently through this method.
- Group Study rooms are equipped with monitors you can attach your personal devices to, white boards, and webcams!
Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week
Between midnight - 8am, access to the West Tower requires a current Crimson Card or chip-enabled CampusAccess card.
