Welcome to the Learning Commons

The Learning Commons is a welcoming place where students can meet with a tutor, study group, or instructor. The Learning Commons is equipped with state-of-the-art computer technology available for your use. Is the Learning Commons the same as the RRCC Library?

Though we are housed in the same building area, and we often collaborate with one another, the Learning Commons is not to be confused with the Marvin Buckels (Campus) Library which is located on the second floor. Both the Learning Commons and Library are located at the east end of the Lakewood Campus. See our services below.

*NOTE:  The Learning Commons has relocated to the Community Room temporarily (Room W 0650) and has been renamed the "Tutoring Center".  The "Tutoring Center" will remain in the Community Room through December 2019, while the NEW Learning Commons space is under construction.  All tutoring previously received in the Learning Commons has resumed in the Community Room.  However, due to the relocation, computer and copy services are not be available.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  Computer access is still available at the Library and Student Project Center, while copy services will still be provided at the Student Life Desk.  Other programs or services listed below may have new locations as well.
