The first floor west corridor area is just outside of the exit gates of Memorial Library. It houses the Memorial Library Info Lab and two late-night study halls. Both of those areas are quiet study spaces, but the rest of the west corridor is designed for collaboration and conversation. The west corridor also contains a lecture hall, room 126, as well as a satellite location for the Writing Center.
