Our library was designed with students' needs in mind. 

The library in our Community Commons building has wireless connectivity, and sophisticated PC and Apple computer workstations equipped with high-speed internet and on-demand printing is available.

The library not only offers you a place to study, read and research, it has private rooms for group studying, lounge seating, modular study carrels and computer stations.
