Five Ways the DC Learning Commons Helps Students Survive
Posted in Home page featured
Last month, Johns Hopkins University Advanced Academic Programs, The Carey Business School, and the School of Advanced International Studies opened the DC Learning Commons located in the JHU AAP building at 1717 Massachusetts Avenue, NW.
This student-centric space is the first of its kind for the Johns Hopkins DC community. With open area seating and comfortable modular design, the Commons offers a unique environment for students to interact and demonstrates the continuing commitment toward student engagement and collaboration by the university.
The Commons is open every day and accessible to all Johns Hopkins University students. Offering a fun, colorful environment and cool tech tools, the Commons is designed to be a home away from home.
Here are ways the DC Learning Commons can be a useful tool in surviving a busy semester:
1. Cooperate and Collaborate
Students have the latest learning technology and flexible workspace at their disposal. Open to close, the Commons is intended to advance learning and foster academic development.
The dynamic space promotes interpersonal development and networking. Located close to major transit lines, the Commons is perfectly situated for students to meet and get work done.
3. Student Oasis
Don’t cram yourself into a crowded coffee shop. The Commons has plenty of space for students to finish that last minute assignment or relax before class.
The space is flexible for a variety of learning styles including self-study, small group study, open group study, and technology-enhanced study. There are high-tech white boards, wireless access, and ample outlets to keep your devices charged.
Students have unprecedented access to other students from three distinct and distinguished schools within the University. The Commons is where ideas, opportunity, and experience converge.

The Learning Commons is open Monday – Friday from 8:00 am – 10:30 pm, Saturday 8:30 am – 4:30 pm.
