Study Spaces and Technology

Collaborative Study Booths

Three Collaboration Booths are available in the Learning Commons. These comfortable booths connect to digital display boards. Students are encouraged to connect their own devices or borrow a Chromebook or iPad Air from the Library to connect to the screen. Up to four devices can be connected to the board via a USB cable. Groups can toggle through each of the four devices to display their screen on the display board.


Movable Furniture 

 Movable furniture is also available in the Learning Commons. Make the space your own by moving the red chairs to suit your study needs. These red chairs also come equipped with a rotating desk arm for resting books or laptops.


Devices

Chromebooks and iPad Airs are available for students to use in the Learning Commons. 

Adapters for iPad Airs, iPad 2s, iPhones, and Macbooks are also available for connecting these devices to the display screens.
