Information Commons re-opens after Summer makeover

In response to your feedback through The National Student Survey 2016, the Information Commons has received a summer makeover.

  • You asked us for a makeover - we’ve introduced a fresh new colour scheme and new carpets throughout.
  • You asked us for more study spaces - we’ve increased the number of chairs.
  • You asked us for new furniture - we’ve replaced worn furniture with an array of new study furniture.

We hope you like the changes we’ve made to your learning spaces – we’ve tackled wear and tear issues, replaced floor coverings and introduced a fresh new colour scheme. Check out the new flexible and collaborative spaces on Level 1. Look out for the new Squiggle Glass too!

Over the coming months, we’ll continue to work with you to develop your learning spaces. We’d love to know what you think, so please get in touch at or tweet us @UniSheffieldLib

The building re-opened at 9am Monday 18 September. Thank you for your patience!
