Brighter, Bolder JPL - 3rd Floor Renovation FAQs

Checkout the JPL 3rd Floor Renovation Timeline

JPL’s third floor has not been updated or renovated since the building opened in 1976. A capital improvements project began on the third floor a little over three years ago after feedback from a 2019 survey on library spaces, services, and collections indicated that students felt that JPL is too crowded and dark. 

The library’s strategic focus on information literacy education and the University’s goal to increase student enrollment to 45,000 by 2028 demonstrated a real need to update this space into a more inviting, collaborative work and study space for students.
