Beginning this fall semester, students at the UWM at Waukesha Library will have access to dedicated group study rooms with shareable technology.

With a capacity for 4-6 students, each of the six new group study rooms has seating and worktables, a white board, and a video monitor with laptop hookups. Walls contain sound-absorbing material to preserve quiet study elsewhere in the library. The rooms are reservable through the UWM Libraries’ online reservation system, D!bs.

The project fulfills a vision articulated in the Waukesha Library’s 2014-15 master plan, which called for the creation of group study rooms in order to repurpose existing spaces in new and innovative ways and support a collaborative learning environment.
