The Learning Studio

The Learning Studio is a partnership of KU Libraries and Undergraduate Studies to create a dynamic, student-centered space located on the 3rd and 4th floor of Anschutz Library. It builds on the success Anschutz Library already enjoys as the central hub of undergraduate research and learning at KU. The Studio features technology, an integrated service point, and a variety of study spaces. All of this is brought together with librarians, IT professionals and academic achievement staff, to support students in writing, research, study skills and use of technology.

Accommodations for tutoring, consulting, and programming spaces within the Learning Studio are considered to support these partnership efforts.  Requests should include evidence of need.  For facility requests, please contact Scott Cossel at or 864-4599.  For programming events, please contact Jill Becker at or 864-4661.

This welcoming environment offers unique opportunities for students to collaborate with their peers, study and research, and find support for their academic work.
