Knowledge Commons - Living Room Areas

Living room Area in the Knowledge Commons near Leisure Reading

The Knowledge Commons has more than 80 large, comfortable chairs that users can re-arrange to best meet their needs

  • W139: Study Lounge (these are also listed as “living rooms” or “study alcove”)
  • W116F: Living room (also referred to as Study Lounge)
  • W116E: Living room (also referred to as Study Lounge)
  • W116D: Living room (also referred to as Study Lounge)

"These comfortable areas provide a place to study, read, or reflect in a quiet environment, slightly away from the hubbub of student activity, yet close to the Libraries’ many services and resources. These settings provide informal areas with comfortable chairs for a multitude of student activities including studying/working alone and/or working quietly with other students."
