The Oshawa Campus Library has approximately 700 study spaces available in a mixture of soft seating, open tables and study carrels.

Our hours change during the summer semester, exam period, and around the holiday break. We also have lots of items you can borrow besides books, including laptops, mice, podcast kits, stationery and more!
