If you have any questions, please contact Jenica Rogers, Executive Director of the Lougheed Learning Commons.


    The Lougheed Learning Commons lobby has been organized to provide comfortable group seating and study space, centered around a sculpture by artist John Van Alstine, which was donated by Donald and Kathryn Lougheed. The Lougheed Learning Commons provides access to campus computers, printing, document scanning and various other technologies. The Single Service Point information desk is there to assist people with circulation services, reference services and on-site tech support.
