Since it opened in 1982, the goal of the Hicks Undergraduate Library has been to create an active learning environment for the Purdue community. Our three interactive classrooms and computer lab support these efforts. We also offer audio/visual equipment for loan.

During the summer of 2017, the basement level of the Hicks Undergraduate Library will be closed.
