University of Rochester Gleason Library

‹ Portfolio

Often referred to as “the library that never sleeps”, Gleason Library is the only 24/7 facility on the University of Rochester’s River Campus, providing students with study and meeting space, academic support, social sustenance, as well as a place to grab a quick meal in between classes.

When heavy use started to take a toll on Gleason library’s appearance, CPL’s higher education team was engaged to develop an effective renewal plan for this Campus staple. A modern, spacious “look and feel” was achieved through a new layout, which features expanded group and individual study spaces, more comfortable furnishings and inspiring finish updates. The renovation allows the building to continue to thrive as an exciting, prominent hub for student discovery and collaboration.
