Upgrades to 24/7 Space at Hahnemann Library

Upgrades to 24/7 Space at Hahnemann Library

One year ago, the Libraries relocated Hahnemann Library’s 24/7 space to the first floor in an effort to increase the size, security and visibility of the space. The move changed what was once a predominately segmented and individual study space to a larger and more open environment with more computers available.

Over the last year, the Libraries has worked closely with students to gather a wide range of feedback regarding their use of the space. The need for individual and focused study space was frequently noted, and informed a renovation that will begin on December 14, 2015. The renovation of the first floor 24/7 space will include improvements such as new carpeting, paint and furniture to help create spaces for focused individual study and to help reduce noise.

The renovation is scheduled to take place largely over the term break to decrease the impact on individuals using the Libraries and it is anticipated that the space will reopen for the beginning of the Winter term on Monday, January 4, 2016. During this period, the first floor of the library will be closed. The second floor space will not be impacted.

Funds for this renovation are the result of donor gifts and the support of University Facilities. For updates and details about this project, please visit library.drexel.edu/construction.
