The Library's Academic Commons includes all of the public spaces on Levels 2 and 3 of the Main Library. Designed as a welcoming space for collaborative learning, the furniture and equipment in Academic Commons can be reconfigured for a variety of events and purposes.
Many of the Learning Events organized jointly by the Library and the Language Centre are hosted here. These CCL-credit bearing activities provide students with further opportunities to broaden their horizons and enhance their skills.
To provide maximum flexibility and convenience in catering for your study needs, Academic Commons opens 24 hours during the semester (including public holidays)! In addition, you can book one of six Group Study Rooms for your collaborative study!

The Multimedia Learning Centre was originally started to house all non-print collections, but the Multimedia Learning Centre also provides a physical space, which embodies the Library’s mission to provide technology-enhanced services like Group Viewing Rooms and Multimedia Stations, high-levels of information literacy through library workshops at the Collaborative Computer Lab, facilities to support research like Postgraduate Study Rooms, and barrier-free access to information at Special Needs User Rooms.
It is also the heart of the Library’s effort to lead the university in data curation by providing quantitative data analysis tools in its Data Analysis Room and by promoting HKBU research through Digital Scholarship Projects.
