Celebrating Five Years of the Post Learning Commons

To register for Wine and Cheese Reception*, click HERE

In the spring of 2012, the John and Maryanne Hennings Post
Learning Commons
,
a twenty-first century technology-inspired space was dedicated to complement the Library’s traditional services.
Located in the heart of campus, the 37,000 square foot facility is the intellectual hub of the University.

Designed as a one-stop shop for students with study needs: from
resources to expertise and instruction spaces, from information
technology to tutoring, from collaborative meeting rooms to quiet group study rooms, Post Learning Commons offers a variety of
student support services and environments. The expanded seating and cafe offers the extended campus community spaces to meet
informally in small groups.

Additionally, there is the Gerard Manley Hopkins, S.J., Special
Collections with a gallery for art collections to be on display.
The Wachterhauser Seminar Room, a technology-rich classroom type space, is a sought-after space for staff and faculty to use for
campus meetings and small events.

In anticipation of the upcoming 5th anniversary of the building of this versatile and well utilized facility, we have a series of
celebratory events planned.
