The Newman Library Learning Commons strives for a holistic approach to campus enrichment and education by partnering with campus and community stakeholders, creating innovative programs, providing collaborative work spaces, and offering diverse technologies.
The Learning Commons, located on the second floor of Newman Library, provides you with a variety of types of learning environments, including group study rooms, interesting furniture, and media:scape collaboration stations.
The SciTech Commons, located in the curved wing of the fourth floor of Newman, is conveniently near our science, agriculture, and engineering collections. Here you'll find some of our group study rooms and our vending machines for drinks and snacks. There are white boards installed around the perimeter, and several more on wheels, plus movable dividers with whiteboard surfaces.
