Congratulations on your new center!
- permanently installed white boards
- mobile white boards
- a partition between our really large room to allow for a group session/SI/workshop on one side and regular tutoring on the other
- mailboxes (slots) for the tutors
- storage cabinet with lock for technology
- chairs with good lumbar support
- shelving for books for reference purposes
- cabinets with locks for instructors' editions and/or solutions manuals
Not so great ideas:
- tables that are standalone as opposed to ones that can merge with others to move from small group set ups to a larger, conference-type arrangement
- filing cabinets for tutor use (They were rarely used.)
- sign-in station tables that were too low as you want to invite faster traffic flow by people standing in front of them vs. sitting to make an appointment or complete a quick exit survey
- SMART boards
This part is fun, so enjoy!

Hello LRSNASST Group!
I am being charged with designing a new (modestly sized) learning center on our campus. Hooray!
I wanted to know what your best – and even worst – Learning Center purchases have been. In particular, what furniture has worked best for flexibility and what pieces were purchased with great intentions but tutors later did not use them
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Bonus points for hyperlink and/or contact information for vendors.
