Studying in the ARC

The ARC is a great study environment when the library is busy, when you need a change of pace, or when you'd like to stay near the freshmen dorms. 

Your group or organization may exclusively reserve the main area of the ARC suite in Daum Hall in the evenings and/or on the weekends!  Reservations may be requested by any member of the LMU campus community for academic purposes. To reserve the ARC suite, please complete the online resrvatiobn form: Reservation Form

During normal business hours, no reservation is needed to study in the ARC.  Here are several of our comfortable options:
