Study Spaces

The Wardman Library building at Whittier College offers students a variety of spaces to meet your study needs. In addition to cozy couches ready for an inspirational catnap, large tables with AC power, and individual study lamps, and a Media viewing station for larger groups, the library also offers the following study space options:

Peace & Quiet
If you seek a quiet, distraction-free area, find a study carrel on the top floor of the library building. Study carrels provide individuals with private workspaces, each complete with AC power and desk lights. Headphones are available for checkout at the circulation desk.

Study Rooms
Located on the Mezzanine and 2nd floor level, Wardman Library’s study rooms are great locations to brainstorm, share ideas, and work in large groups. All study rooms have white boards and some are equipped with HD displays. Dry erase markers and erasers are available for checkout at the circulation desk.

Late Night Study Area
Whittier College students are welcome to study into the wee hours of the night in the Late Night Study Are, located on the ground floor of the library building. Current Whittier College student IDs are required for entry. PCs, printing, study carrels, couches, rest rooms and vending machines are available.

To promote a safe and secure environment, Campus Safety regularly patrols the area. Please call Campus Safety, ext. 4211, if you need after hours assistance.

Food and Drink
Wardman Library allows students to enjoy food and beverages within the library building. However, please clean up after yourself, and notify staff if you see spilled drinks or food in the Library.
