The COLLAB is designed to accommodate group project and collaborative work.

The Group Project Rooms are located in the Library Media Center on the first floor of the main library. COLLAB provides wireless access to the Internet. CSUS students can checkout a laptop from the Library Media Center, Help Desk (AIRC - 2005) or the ASI Business Office (3rd Floor Union). CSUS faculty can checkout a laptop from the Help Desk Located in the AIRC 2005. The COLLAB is wireless enabled for use with laptops.
