Our main campus library has many spaces that students enjoy studying in:

On the first floor, there are three main spaces to study in. The Weyerhaeuser Reading Room has desks with desk lamps, along with couches and booths in the adjoining room. The De Pree Reading Room has a mixture of desk study spaces and also soft sofa seats. Since this is our reference room, this is one of the quietest and most studious areas of the library. The Peggy Helmerich Learning Commons (lobby) has high chairs, tables, and new sofas with electric outlets for laptop use. This area is often used as a social space or a study space (or both!) Students can also hang out with a delicious coffee or tea from Ambrose Cafe and our new coffee cart, or take one to go.

On the second floor, the east side of the building has a mixture of communal study desks, individual study carrels, and soft sofa seats. Many of them are next to ceiling to floor windows which makes the space light, airy, and bright.

On the third floor, the east side of the building has a mixture of communal study desks, individual carrels, and soft sofa seats; the balcony also has chairs and tables.

If you are looking for a quiet place to write a paper, or for intensive study, there are some study carrels available in Basement A, along with longer tables and chairs in Basement B.

Individual study rooms are available to current students through our online reservation system, or by inquiring at the Circulation desk. These rooms are perfect for study groups or group project meetings, and many come equipped with a large monitor for screen sharing and media presentations. 

Unfortunately, we cannot offer our study rooms to alumni and visitors, as they are reserved for current student use.
