Selley Study Commons
The Selley Study Commons is a quiet study area on the 3rd floor that offers furniture designed for quiet, individual study. The area has been officially named in honor of Paul P. and Elizabeth Selley, and the Selley Foundation, which provided the original funds to develop the same space into a reading and study area.
The Study Commons provides seats that are nearly all private seating rather than group seating around tables. Still, students wishing to study together in groups in the study commons can effectively do so, since most of these private seats are grouped in clusters and where new tables are provided they are more effectively placed. These furniture clusters are of four basic types: Carrel seating (seat clusters with 4 units each, two units on each side), Pod work stations (work station seating in circular sets for single users), and individual lounge seating with privacy screens (individual soft chairs with built-in tablet arms and accompanying movable privacy screens with white boards).
