PH2 Room

The Peggy Wai Chee Leong-Hochstadt Room (Level 5), aka the PH Room, used to house our reference collection.

Since August 2017, half of PH Room, named as PH2, has become a prototype of open collaboration space. Some of its features include a variety of flexible, cosy, and formal seats, along with plenty of movable whiteboards. The whole PH Room is fully operating as collaboration space from March 2018. All facilities in the room are available on first come, first served basis for all library users (NUS staff, students, alumni and library external members).

Users are free to move all furniture housed within the space to create their own cosy corner. To encourage active learning, not all discussions have to be study/work-related. Users can also use the room to play chess and boardgames that are provided within the room.
