Please note, beyond our bookable, individual study spaces in the Matheson Learning Commons, all other study zones are currently unavailable due to COVID-19 closures.
The James A. Gibson Library offers an environment for quiet study, group learning and collaboration.
The Library has over 1400 comfortable study spaces in three distinct zones: common areas, quiet areas and silent study zones. The Library is food-friendly with the exception of Archives and Special Collections.
Quiet Study Areas
The one-person study carrels and computer workstations on the main floor and the study carrels on floors 5, 6, 7, and 8 are quiet areas. Individual study rooms for quiet study are available on a drop-in basis on floor 8.
Silent Study Areas
Floors 9, 10, and Classroom B (when not in use for instruction) are silent areas. An enclosed silent study room with seating for over 30 is available on floor 5. Individual study rooms for silent study are available on a drop-in basis on floors 9 and 10.
Group Study and Common Areas
Most of the main (second) floor of the Library and Learning Commons consists of common areas, including the Ask Us desk, group study areas and rooms, instructional space, and comfortable seating areas.
Floors 5, 6, and 7 of the Library also have several group study areas with bookable group study rooms, whiteboards and electrical outlets.
