Campus Library

The campus library is a mandated and mediated space, that gives students, faculty, and alumni a sense of community.

We have a collection of iMacs and PCs at the library. Please be as quiet as possible and set phones to vibrate or silent. For group work, simply book the adjoining meeting room, or request an empty classroom from the reception office. Food and drink should be consumed in the student lounge in the main building (bottles with closable caps are fine in the library). There are also three iMacs in the lounge.
