Spahr Library Closed for Renovation

Spahr Engineering Library is currently closed due to construction. The renovation, part of the LEEP 2 construction project, will include expanded study areas, dedicated student group office spaces and a larger café.

  • Students will still have multiple places to study throughout the engineering complex
