Graduate Student Study Space - Third Floor Renovations

Why is this renovation taking place now?

We understand this is a difficult time of the academic year, and ideally the renovations to the Graduate Student Study Space would have been done during the quieter summer months.  However, the funding for the project must be used before March 31st, 2018.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

What will the renovated Graduate Student Study Space look like once completed?

The newly renovated space takes into consideration the needs expressed by Graduate Students from a survey, and focus groups the Libraries held with Graduate Students in 2016.

Based on the feedback from Graduate students, we will be adding more seating (67% increase), with varied seating including comfy seats, study tables, and individual study pods, plus more outlets, better lighting, refreshed paint, graduate student assigned lockers and new flooring. The space will receive a complete facelift!

Check out ournew floor plan.

What is the expected completion date?

February 2018.

Where can I find quiet study space during the renovation?

  • Quiet study space can be found in the Lower Level of the library, rooms A003 and A025, and the Law Library.
  • Also you can sign out noise cancelling headphones from the Music and Media Desk located on the main floor of the Mearns Centre for Learning – McPherson Library.
