A new space for UofGH students

The University of Guelph-Humber has recently opened the new, updated Learning Commons, a newly renovated space for UofGH students to work, study, and collaborate.

Located on the second floor of the University of Guelph-Humber’s campus, the innovative new Learning Commons space features 42 All-in-One computers for students, ample seating, and two state-of-the-art new Huddle Rooms equipped with the latest technology to help UofGH students seamlessly collaborate and share work, both in-person and virtually.

“The updated Learning Commons offers University of Guelph-Humber students a comfortable and technologically advanced new space to study, collaborate on coursework and extra-curricular activities, and spend time together while on campus,” said Susan Thomas, Acting Department Head, Student Services.

In addition to the 42 computers for students, the new Learning Commons also features four QuickPrint computer stations, photocopiers that are integrated with Humber’s OneCard system, and two new service desks, each boasting a digital display. 

The new Huddle Rooms are equipped with integrated audio-visual hardware, enabling students to conduct virtual meetings or connect their devices wirelessly to share content, resources, and ideas on the large screens.

The Learning Commons also includes a variety of seating types and arrangements, accommodating teams of all different sizes and allowing students to work both collaboratively and independently in the way that suits them best.

The new Learning Commons is also now home to the University of Guelph-Humber’s Learning Support Peers — who help students with a variety of services including course selection, academic program information, and workshops — and the Computer Support Assistants, who are on hand to offer students assistance with a range of technical support services, including login problems, software questions, or wireless network access.

“The Learning Commons is a great place for students to gather, study together, and access peer resources,” said Kayla Charbonneau, a Senior Learning Support Peer and fourth-year Psychology student.

“Having the Learning Support Peers back at the Learning Commons Desk means that we can connect face-to-face with students for drop-in services, course registration help, and Learning Skills workshops. We’re excited to be back on campus and to see students on the second floor.”
