Quiet Study Areas
The second floor of the Learning Commons is designated as a Quiet Study Area. It is meant to give students a place to concentrate without noisy distractions. Loud talking is prohibited in these areas. Anyone making noise may be asked to leave.

Group Study Areas
The first floor of the Learning Commons is a Group Study Area. It is a space in which students may collaborate on projects or help each other study. Conversation is expected, but students are to keep noise levels to a minimum.

These rooms are equipped with a large study table, computer and a TV/DVD or TV/VCR and are available on a first come-first served basis. Study Rooms may be reserved at the Circulation Desk or Reserve Desk.
