Our Study Lounge is available for use any time of day, any day of the week. Students can work in this space both collaboratively in small groups and quietly on their own in uniquely private study pods. Glass tables allow users to write directly on the surface, and large displays allow easy screen sharing for group work. Dining style seating, lounge seating, and a bartop is available for personal laptops. Creature comforts of the space include a printing station, coffee and food vending machines, and plenty of outlets for mobile devices. For more information about technology in the room, refer to our Technology: Group Study and Collaborative Areas page.
This space was formerly the "24/7 Study Room." The room was so popular that the library made the whole main floor available 24/7.
