Event Venues Description

Falvey is home to four event venues: The Learning Commons (Room 204 and 205), the Speakers' Corner and the First Floor Lounge.

  • The Learning Commons, including Rooms 204 & 205, are located on the second floor of the Library. Rooms 204 and 205 are, like the Speakers’ Corner, dedicated event spaces which students can use as study areas when there are no events or class sessions. These rooms are already arranged in a standard classroom or lecture set-up. Each room has about 30- 35 chairs, accompanying desks, and a podium for a standard set-up. The desks can be folded up to allow up to 60 chairs to fit in the space. Room 204 has a built-in projector and screen, while room 205 is home to a large flat-screen television. Laptops can be connected to either system for presentations via the built-in cables at the front of the room.
  • The Speakers' Corner is located in the back of the first floor area. It is a dedicated event space, and it hosts most lectures in the Library. It doubles as an additional lounge area when not in use for events. 
  • The First Floor Lounge is located to the right side of the main building entrance. The events held here are minimally invasive to the lounge space and occupy only the near right corner of the lounge, or the space immediately in front of the large hanging wall tapestry.
