The Library East Commons was designed to give students a new common area for technology-rich learning activities and informal group events. The two main themes of the Library East Commons are flexibility and group activity.

The presentation space is a flexible space that can have its usage changed in a matter of minutes. By the use of re-configurable components, instant rooms or backdrops are created for events. Other technology components include specialty lighting, projectors, and projection screens.

An exciting feature of East Commons is its ability to host exhibits and a gallery for student produced artwork and research.
