Just a five-minute walk from the Webster Library, the Grey Nuns Reading Room is situated in the beautiful former Grey Nuns chapel space located at 1190 Guy Street. The Reading Room is one of the Library’s silent study spaces, so with the strict no-talking rule in place, it’s an ideal spot to study for an exam, review notes for an upcoming class or write your thesis.

The Reading Room provides seating for 192 students, and additionally, there are 14 group study rooms on the first floor of the Grey Nuns building that can be reserved. Eleven of these group study rooms are equipped with digital collaboration technology including a 46” LCD screen with wired and wireless connections and a wide-angle USB camera.

Please note that students must remove their footwear to protect the floors in the Reading Room.
