New for Fall 2022 semester! We are testing out zoned spaces to help you know what to expect from a study atmosphere. This floor is a Collaborative Zone and you can expect group work, socializing, and a conversational noise level.

This open floor plan provides a combination of seating for groups. Enter the floor through the glass doors beyond the information services desk in the Shapiro lobby, and you’ll find low, soft seating that can be rearranged to fit your needs. 

Further along on the floor, you’ll find rows of large rectangular tables and hard seating, as well as a section with moveable tables and chairs.

A computing area is mixed in with other seating on the floor. Two glass-enclosed areas offer additional seating options and whiteboards for study and brainstorming. 

This is also where you can find spaces that are part of the Shapiro Design Lab.
