Support for our researchers

The Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons is a central hub of technology access on campus. We host the largest computer lab at SU, distributed across three floors of the building. We offer reservable group study rooms equipped with computers and AV equipment, loans of laptop computers, audio and video recording gear, photography equipment, technology training, and much more. We strive to meet the technology needs of on- and off-campus researchers, and to offer support online, over the phone, and in person, to ensure that you have a good experience using our resources.



Technology Lending

Technology in the library

The Library & Learning Commons houses desktop computers in three labs and laptop computers that can be checked out for use within the building. Computer Labs on the first and second floors are accessible 24/7 to students, faculty and staff with a valid campus ID card.

Use of these computers is restricted to academic purposes and to Seattle University students, faculty and staff (a Seattle University network ID and password is required). Computers are available on a first come, first served basis.

  • We loan Chromebook laptops for students to use in support of their learning. Chromebooks loan last the whole quarter, and can be renewed in Finals week for the following quarter. To request a Chromebook, place a hold from the Chromebooks record in Primo.
  • We also loan cellular hotspots, for students to use during an interruption in their home internet access, such as a move, or while waiting for a landlord or ISP to make repairs. Hotspots loan for six days, and can be renewed once. To request a Hotspot, place a hold from the Bridge Hotspots record in Primo.
  • We offer short-term loans of TI-84 graphing calculators, suitable for use during many math exams. These cannot be reserved, visit the circulation desk on the third floor of the library to borrow one.
