Due to ongoing repairs in Lauinger Library, the temperatures on Floors 5, 4, and in the Pierce Reading Room are currently lower than normal. Users may find more comfortable temperatures on the 3rd Floor outside of the Pierce Reading Room and on Floors 2, 1, and the Lower Level as well as the Bioethics and Blommer Science Libraries.
The library has several lounges for undergraduate and graduate students. These areas are available for use whenever the library is open. If group study rooms are not available, there are tables in the lounges where discussions can take place.
There are two Graduate Study Lounges in Lauinger, located on the first and fourth floors. These rooms are designated quiet with laptop use permitted and are solely for Graduate Students. The fourth floor Graduate Study Lounge is designated for Main Campus Graduate Students only. GOCard swipe is required for entrance.
Most of the second floor is also a study lounge. The Midnight Mug is located here, and the second floor is the only location in the library where food is allowed.
