BIO Learning Lounge

The BIO Learning Lounge is an inviting, safe space for all students taking any course offered by the Department of Biological Sciences. Our mission is to help you discover, engage and belong at OU, whether you are a freshman starting out or a senior about to graduate.

Students will have access to academic materials such as textbooks, computers and online resources to complete coursework.

With options to work with our graduate assistant, Isabella, and other peer mentors on staff, homework help is a breeze! As a study-motivated environment, this location encourages students to ask questions. They will work alongside mentors to deepen their understanding of concepts taught both inside and outside of the classroom.

While the Lounge is for academic support, we encourage students to use this space to connect with others. Students using the lounge will be given the chance to mingle with other biology students, create study groups or work independently, if desired.

Stop by to work with peer mentors or study independently, no appointment necessary!
