Carpenter Library Community Engagement & Giving

Seat-A-Student

Furniture replacement and repair is essential and every student should have a “seat” to fit their particular learning style and facilitate success. With the new Library Commons renovation, exciting new spaces for collaborative and individual work have been delivered to benefit every UNF student and faculty member.

The “Seat-a-Student” program will ensure Library furniture keeps pace with changes in education, research and need, and that each space is suitably furnished for group-work areas, presentation-practice rooms or individual study carrels. Whether there are chairs, banquette seating, stools, pods, tables or stations the Seat-a-Student program will help guarantee that no UNF student in 2050 will encounter the same furniture installed in 2015.

Though the Library Commons design-build is complete for the present time, the Library still has a 200 seat deficit.  This becomes very clear during exam weeks when our dedicated students are seated along the floors in the building.  The Library serves over 800,000 students per year and it is critical to add seating to accommodate their need.
