What is the Academic Commons?

The Spalding University Academic Commons is a student-centered space where learning can extend beyond the classroom, and support - whether it be relaxation, quiet study, tutoring, or collaboration - is available. The commons is located on the 2nd floor of the Spalding University Library.

Hosting Events in the Academic Commons

The Academic Commons is a wonderful space for events, and we welcome Spalding organizations and departments to host events in the space. Small meetings and informal gatherings are welcome at any time and do not require a reservation. We do ask that you complete the reservation form below if:

  • You will be moving furniture or making changes to the layout of the space
  • You expect more than 15-20 attendees
  • Food and drinks are provided at the event

Completing this form will allow us to ensure that staff are aware of the event and available to assist throughout.

Please note: The commons is a student-focused space and is open to all Spalding students, faculty, and staff during open hours. This means that all events held in the commons are by definition open to the entire Spalding Community. If this does not work for you, please contact and we will be happy to discuss options for your event.
