Quai d’Orsay Learning Commons

Officially opened in March 2019, the Quai d’Orsay Learning Commons is the newest building on campus. The Learning Commons offers ten stories of contemporary, functional space focused on innovative learning and student development. It connects directly to Combes via a glass atrium, allowing you to move seamlessly between student life and learning activities.

The Quai is home to the AUP Library, with dedicated quiet study spaces and rooms for you to meet your classmates for group projects. This is also where you will meet with your academic advisor to discuss your class options, before heading to the Internship Office to discuss internship options for next summer.
