Leavey Auditorium - Learning Rooms A and B
One-time class meetings and events sponsored by USC faculty, staff or student organizations qualify for use in the Auditorium and Learning Rooms. Specifically excluded are courses and/or events for an entire semester.
Both the Upper and Lower Information Commons have rooms available for group study. For reservations and policies, please see this link.
Designed primarily to support events that require multimedia display, and secondarily to enhance campus life through educational and cultural events. The Auditorium has audience seating for 49 people. Priority scheduling will be given for events with multimedia needs.
Designed for "hands on" computer instruction only. (If your class does not require these capabilities, contact the Scheduling Office at (213) 740-6728 for a regular classroom.)
Learning Room A has 20 PC student workstations and one PC instructor's station.
Learning Room B has 24 student Macintosh workstations and one Macintosh instructor's station.
Please note: As a teaching library, Leavey is the primary campus venue supporting information literacy education. During weeks 4 through 12 of the Fall and Spring semesters, priority scheduling for the Leavey Learning Rooms is given to librarian-led instruction sessions requested by teaching faculty.
For more information about course-integrated information literacy instruction, please see the USC Libraries Instruction website.
