New Accessible Quiet Room

Mon. Jan. 27, 2020

The library has introduced a pilot project with the aim of providing quiet study space for students who are unable to access the quiet areas on the 5th floor of the library. It is intended for UWinnipeg students with accessibility needs, although users are not required to register with Accessibility Services.

The room features the following accommodations:

  • Automatic door opener
  • 3 height-adjustable tables with digital controls
  • 1 adjustable Tempur-pedic office chair
  • 1 couch
  • Touch lamps 
  • A large window, with adjustable shade controls
  • An emergency phone
  • Power outlets

Students should review the full room policies prior to using the space.

This space will test the feasibility of an open accessibility room that does not require students to self-identify. The library welcomes suggestions for improvement. Please forward all comments to the Assessment Librarian, Joshua Herter (j.herter@uwinnipeg.ca). An anonymous comment box is also available in the space.
