The Scholars’ Lab Common Room provides twenty computer workstations in both solo and small group/collaborative configurations. Sunny and open, it can be enjoyed as study space as well, with additional seating for about thirty-two people at tables and chairs and another fourteen at the laptop bar with a view of the patio outside.
We hold regular Open Office Hours during fall and spring term at the discussion area at the south (main entrance) end of the room.
Here is where you will also find our Makerspace.
The Scholars’ Lab Makerspace is a place for crafting, tinkering, and experimentation with technologies like desktop fabrication, physical computing, and augmented reality. Open to everyone—absolutely no prior experience needed!—we specialize in hands-on approaches to research questions in the humanities and arts.
