Computers & Study Spaces

Student Computer Lab

The lab located on the upper (third) floor is temporarily closed for renovations. In the meantime, PCs and iMacs are available for use on both Library floors. Laptops are also available for student checkout. Printers are located on both floors.

Public Use Computers

The Library also provides three computers for public (non-student) access. Check-in at the Circulation Desk is required before use. No ID is required. These computers are provided to the public with the expectation that users have a basic understanding of both computer software and the internet. The public access computers are stationed in the Library Lounge, a community space where conversation and interaction are encouraged. Please read a more thorough description of our Public Computer Guidelines (.doc 40KB).


The entire campus, including the library, is now equipped to provide wireless access to all students, as well as to guests. If you have problems accessing wireless service please ask the library staff for assistance.

Laptops & iPads

Students may check out laptops in the Library for in-house use (limited take-home use is also available). iPads are currently reserved for class instruction only. Ask at the Circulation Desk for details.

Library Learning Commons

The Library Learning Commons is located on the upper (third) floor of the Library. This open study area offers a casual, collaborative learning space complete with computers, mobile whiteboards, a Mediascape station, and on-site tutoring assistance, not to mention an incredible view. For more information, inquire at the Circulation Desk.
