The University Library’s Learning Commons is now open for limited study space and computer/printing access.

The CSUN University Library is pleased to provide limited individual study space and computer/printing access on the Library’s main floor to current CSUN students only, while the Library otherwise remains closed.

Prior to entering the Library, students will need to reserve an individual study space or computer station using the LibCal reservation system.
