D'Amour You Know

The best study spaces at the D’Amour Library!

Everyone has unique ways of studying that work for them. Some students like to get comfortable in soft seating, some need a silent study space where they can shut out the world, while others like the white noise of a bustling environment.

Well, D'Amour Library has it all! 

On the
first floor of the D’Amour Library, you’ll find a busy library environment. There are plenty of computers to use, tables to spread out on, and soft seating to get comfortable in. Normal conversation is permitted on the first floor, so this space can be perfect for group work or a quick place to stop in between classes to check your email or meet a classmate. This is also great for those that like to work in a busy environment. 

If you like or need complete quiet to study, stop by the circulation desk and ask for a key for one of our study rooms on the 2nd or 3rd floor. These study rooms are perfect for focused, individual study (ask for a small study room), or for those working on a group project (you guessed it - we have large study rooms as well).

If you like to study in quiet but don’t like to be constrained by a study room, head up to the 3rd floor where we maintain a whisper-quiet noise level. Here you’ll find more
comfy chairs, large tables, study carrels, and computers. Some students love to study in the alcoves on the third floor - it’s like having as study room without a door and with natural light!

Below are the results of a twitter poll where we asked you where you like to study at the D’Amour Library - study rooms beat out the alcoves and the comfy chairs by a hair. These results just go to show you that people have different preferences for how and where they like to study, and here at the library we try to​ have it all!
