Gilbane Study Lounge

Book Swap! Take a look at our Book Swap, found in the Gilbane Lounge (1st floor.) You can take any books that interest you and leave any that you’d like for others to find.

Katzenberg Center

The center is neither a research nor lending library, but rather a place for reading and quiet study.

The Katzenberg Center provides at least one copy of each of the textbooks assigned for all classes, as well as a variety of printed materials and study guides that faculty put on reserve for required reading.

The center offers wireless Internet access, allowing students to use their laptops. There are also several computers in the main room for student use, but students must go elsewhere to print their papers. A list of available and convenient sites for printing can be obtained at the main desk.

Room 130, 3rd Floor
Monday–Thursday: 9 am to 5 pm
Friday: 9 am to 4 pm

Writing Center

Located in the Katzenberg Center on the third floor, the center is a comfortable space where CGS students can meet with faculty to strengthen their writing and close reading skills. This is an excellent opportunity to receive one-on-one help with writing assignments, e.g. close reading, developing a thesis, documentation styles and more.

We urge you to sign up in the Writing Center, Room 330 B, as early as possible—at least several days in advance during busy times.

Room 330B, 3rd Floor (In the back of the Katzenberg)
