Lilly Library Lounge: Home






Welcome to the new Lilly Library Student Lounge!

Designed especially for commuter students and funded by a grant from the Lilly Endowment.



Located just to the left of the main doors, near the circulation desk, the Lounge features these items designed especially to help commuting students:

  • Day-use lockers, so you can store items between classes
  • Day-use fridge -- bring your lunch to campus and store it here.
  • Microwave -- to warm up your food.
  • Cafe benches with built-in outlets to charge your devices.
  • Comfy seating, to rest & relax between classes.


While designed especially for commuter students, all students are welcome to use the space. If the number of available lockers is low, we ask that on-campus students respect the needs of commuter students, and not use the lockers.
