The Lydia M. Olson Library's temporary location in Gries Hall offers virtual reality areas for students, faculty, and staff to explore entertainment, creative, and educational apps.

Located on the first floor of Gries Hall, along the Study Room hallway, the VR area currently houses three PCs with tethered Meta Quest 2 headsets.

Our student assistants are available to assist you in getting started, and suggest specific apps.

Additionally, you can reserve a workstation through the links above. For group reservations such as dorm halls or student groups, please reach out to Kevin McDonough.
