Learning Commons Renovation: Home

This guide will keep you up to date on the LTC Learning Commons renovation.

About the Learning Commons Renovation

As of June 1, 2021, MCC Library Services are being offered alongside Academic Support & Tutoring on the main floor of the LTC and the first floor of the Student Services Center.  The top floor of the LTC is undergoing renovation for the Learning Commons.  

This project includes the addition of six (6) study rooms and a video room, the relocation of Academic Support & Tutoring to the LTC, the replacement of cubicles with traditional offices for staff, and the expansion of student collaboration space in the library. Upon completion of the renovation, Academic Support & Tutoring, the Library, the Center for Teaching & Learning, and the IT Help Desk services will all be provided on the main and top floors of the LTC in a newly created space known as the Learning Commons.

Computers and Printing

Desktop computers and printers are available during operating hours to students, faculty, staff, and community members in two locations:

  • LTC 228 on the main floor of the Learning Technology Center 
  • Academic Support & Tutoring on the first floor of the Student Services Center

To add money to your ID card or to obtain a guest printing card using cash and coins, the AddValue machine is in LTC 228.  You can also visit the Business Office (M-F 8-5) to obtain your card and add money using cash, debit, or credit.
