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



Due to the ever-evolving coronavirus situation, The Learning Commons will be providing updates on hours of operation and tutoring.  As of March 23rd, 2020, The Learning Commons is CLOSED until further notice.  Please check this webpage, as well as the ESL/Foreign Language Lab, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's), Learning Commons Hours and Tutoring link in the left pane for information.  

On-Campus tutoring will NOT be available.  However, On-Line Tutoring, provided by TutorMe, is now available and can be accessed via D2L.  Click Here to access those directions.

If you have any questions, please contact us at (303) 914-6705 or (303) 914-6704 and we will be in touch within 24 hours.  We apologize for any inconvenience these changes may cause you, and we appreciate your patience.
