A guide to study spaces on campus

Posted: August 19, 2020

Looking for a place to study, complete assignments or take a hy-flex course?

Here’s a list of spaces across campus that are available to you.

Nash Library

There are hundreds of seats available in open areas throughout the library both inside as well as outside in the courtyards or the patio outside the Urban Brew.  Students should keep in mind that the 2nd and 3rd floors are quieter areas of the library – with the 3rd floor being a silent floor – while the first floor and lower level are more “active.”
We also have 49 study rooms that currently accommodate up to two people.  If students wish to ensure they have a private space, these can be booked by visiting https://library.gannon.edu/c.php?g=1013815 or scanning the QR code posted at each room.
There are also over 40 computer workstations and 15 loaner laptops that can be used by students who need them.  We also have a limited number of headphones that are sanitized after each use. 
Students can visit or call (814-871-7557) the Nash Library Service Desk for assistance and additional information.
There are a total of 308 indoor seats (not including study rooms or computers)
There are a total of 87 outdoor seats
