Sensory friendly maps

These maps are designed for users with sensory sensitivities who are looking for study spaces that fit their needs. In these maps, we highlight spaces in the Hill and Hunt Libraries that have natural or warm lighting, tend to be quiet, or tend to be uncrowded. These maps were designed with autistic users in mind, but they may be helpful for all users of the Libraries.

Looking for other ways to filter spaces at the Libraries, like whether they're reservable or have whiteboards? Explore Spaces
