Places to Study in the Library

" "


Leeward Community College Library seeks to provide access to knowledge and learning through the use of library resources and facilities; to maintain a comfortable and safe environment for both library users and staff; and to protect library resources and facilities. Use of library resources and facilities is a privilege granted to registered students, faculty, and staff of Leeward Community College. Affiliated users and visitors whose needs for use reflect the educational mission of Leeward Community College are also welcome.

Library users are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the Library's Acceptable Behavior Policy.

2nd Floor (Lower Level), Learning Commons Area

The open Learning Commons area is a collaborative space intended for students working individually or in groups. Noise can be expected in this area, but we require everyone who is using the area to be respectful of others by using "indoor voices" and behaving in an appropriate manner. See floor map for details.

2nd Floor, Group Study Rooms

Groups of 3 to 4 people may schedule the use of one of two group study rooms for an hour, and may extend use into a second hour if no one else has booked the room. The group must include at least one current Leeward CC student. The rooms each have a large wall-mounted monitor that you can connect to using an HDMI cable or Apple TV. See the Group Study Room Policy for more details.

To reserve a group study room, you can go to our Group Study Room Reservation page or call the Circulation Desk at (808) 455-0210.

2nd Floor,  Kapunawai - Hawaiʻi-Pacific Resource Room

Kapunawai was established as a Hawaiian place of learning in the library.  The room houses part of the Hawaiʻi-Pacific Collection, a reference desk, and functions as a small instruction and event space.  When the room is not scheduled for classes or events it is available as a study space. More about Kapunawai 

3rd Floor (Upper Level), Library

The library's 3rd floor is intended for those who need a quiet space to study. Study tables border both sides of this floor and there is a quiet study corner on the Diamond Head side of this floor with individual study carrels. See the library map for the layout.

Charging Personal Devices

The library is happy to offer power options to its patrons. Outlets can be found on both floors, typically on the outskirts. The library also offers courtesy charging stations for your mobile devices. These stations have both types of Apple connectors, Micro USB, and USB-C connectors for Android and Windows devices. Some charging stations also have USB ports if you need to plug in your own cable. Charging stations are located on both floors. Feel free to ask for assistance if you'd like help locating a power source.

Food and Drinks in the Learning Commons and Library

Covered drinks and dry snacks are allowed.  Please consult the library's Food & Drink Policy for more information about what is allowed in our facility.
