Graduate Commons


Four photos of the grad commons. One area has shared long desks in the interior with carrels on the exterior. A second image has low, movable chairs in the second room. A third image is in the same room showing tall bar chairs and tables along the side of a wall. A fourth image has a cramped group study room with table and several chairs.

A large space on the 3rd floor of the Waterloo campus library reserved just for graduate students.

The Graduate commons is study space specifically for graduate students, located on the 3rd floor of the library on the Waterloo campus. The space includes group study rooms, individual study space, tables for group discussion and comfy chairs. All students registered for graduate or postdoctoral studies at Laurier are welcome to use the space.

This space, dedicated to all graduate students at Wilfrid Laurier University, was made possible by generous donations from The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, the Graduate Students' Association, alumni, and friends of the Library, in the interests of advancing graduate study and the university as a centre of comprehensive learning.
