Accessible Quiet Study Room

Much of the library's quiet study space is located in hard-to-reach places on the 5th floor of Centennial Hall; the 1970's construction created a number of loft mezzanine areas that are only accessible via spiral staircases. 

The purpose of this room is to increase the provision of quiet  space in the library for students who are unable to utilize the areas on the 5th floor. It is intended for UWinnipeg students with accessibility needs, although users are not required to register with Accessibility Services. This was a response to feedback received from UWSA and Accessibility Services.
