Kingston Campus Library

In response to student feedback, all of Kingston Campus Library is a quiet space. We ask students working in groups to book a Group Study Room or use the adjacent Davies Hall. Davies Hall is a large study hall maintained by the Student Association. Our Quiet Study Room behind the Academic Support Centre is available to all students. This space follows the Silent Study guidelines. Noise complaints can be directed to library staff at the Service Desk or by texting the number provided on each study desk, or by using our chat service.

Quiet Study Rooms

Each campus library has a separate, enclosed Quiet Study Room available for all students to drop-in. This space follows the Silent Study guidelines.

Study Desks (Carrels)

Study desks at all three campus libraries are for quiet, individual study. These desks follow the Quiet Study guidelines.

Group Study Rooms 

Group Study Rooms are intended for use by groups of St. Lawrence College students. Each room has a table, chairs, and interactive SMART Board. Group Study Rooms are a great place to meet to discuss a group project, hold a study session, or practice a class presentation. SMART Board kits and pens can be borrowed from the Library Service Desk with valid Student ID.
