The start of a new academic year is an exciting time! A special welcome to our new students at both the downtown and Schaumburg campuses.  We are glad you're here. 

Check back to this page for updates on welcome back events and activities in the weeks ahead. And be sure to follow along with the hashtag #LakerDays!

Learning Commons

The Learning Commons is a new collaborative learning environment located in the library. This space allows current students one-stop access to the Writing Center, Math Lab, Academic Success Center (including Disability Services), as well as tutoring for other subjects. Students can go to The Learning Commons to have easy access to the library's many databases; to discuss group projects, paper topics or ideas; to prepare for an upcoming exam; or to hang out with friends while studying.

Check out the new space in the Murray-Green Library, 10th floor of the Auditorium Building.

Updated Office Locations

There have been many recent moves on campus, and we want to make sure you find all of the new locations for faculty, staff and administrative offices. The University website provides two directories to help you out: the faculty/staff directory and a new office directory. We will keep these directories up-to-date, so please consult them should you need help finding a new office location.
