What Do Undergraduates Want in the Renovated Library?

Late last fall, over 1,200 under­grad­u­ates at the UW responded to a sur­vey ask­ing about their pref­er­ences in a ren­o­vated Ode­gaard Library. A large major­ity of respon­dents wanted nat­ural light and more quiet study spaces. A major­ity also asked for more group study spaces, brighter col­ors in the library and flex­i­ble spaces. Tech­nol­ogy remains crit­i­cal, with many report­ing using desk­top com­put­ers or mobile devices that ben­e­fit from access to out­lets.  The ongo­ing ren­o­va­tion will pro­vide qui­eter study space on the third floor, addi­tional group study rooms on the first floor, and an atrium flooded with nat­ural light.
