Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

The Laurier library has students’ backs.

That’s truer than ever now thanks to a project jointed funded by the Library and a generous Student Life Levy grant to upgrade its Waterloo campus individual study rooms with ultra-comfortable, ergonomic chairs.

The study rooms can be easily booked online up to one week in advance by students registered with the Accessible Learning Centre or PhD candidates actively engaged in research.

“Laurier students asked for this in our consultations with them about how the library can best serve their needs,” said Mark Weiler, Laurier’s web and user experience librarian. “We are always looking for incremental ways to improve student success, and we’re very grateful to the Student Life Levy for supporting our efforts.”

The library has now procured the chairs for each of the 13 individual study rooms in the Waterloo campus Library building. The rooms are spread between floors three to seven of the building and can be booked at the main desk in addition to online. (The online booking system uses a privacy enhancing feature).

In addition to the new chairs, the various individual study rooms include features such as power bars, headphones, workstations and lockable doors.

For more information about the features of each of the rooms, visit the individual study room page on the library’s website.
