About the Learning Commons

Officially opened in September 2017, the Florence and Lipton Chuang Learning Commons is an extension of the Library at the Saint Francis University (SFU) campus. It provides a supportive, student-centered learning environment for knowledge sharing and development.

This extension has an area of about 16,000 sq. ft. and a seating capacity of around 400, featuring an advanced e-learning laboratory, four group discussion rooms equipped with audio-visual tools, quiet study areas, flexible seating combinations and large open spaces for leisure reading and self-study purposes. Wireless (WiFi) network connectivity as well as colour and black/white printing and copying services are available.

Apart from facilities and equipment, a broad range of services and activities are provided to support self-paced learning and enhance students’ research experience, such as reference enquiry services and workshops on citation management and information search.
