Learning Commons

Students working together a group

The UNK Learning Commons is a collaboration of the Calvin T. Ryan Library and the Division of Student Affairs. A welcoming, student-centered space on the second floor of Ryan Library, the Learning Commons is here to help improve your understanding of course material and develop stronger learning skills.

The Learning Commons centralizes academic support services to foster student confidence and independence in a collaborative learning environment. Come to the Learning Commons by yourself or in groups to access the library's print and electronic collections, use technology for research and coursework, and access course and writing assistance.

These programs contribute to this philosophy in the LC in conjunction with Library services:
