Students studying at the Paul Weigel Library of Architecture, Planning & Design 

After nine decades in Seaton Hall, the architecture library opened in a 6,500-square-foot space on the ground floor of Regnier Hall in 2017. The modern steel and glass building is a visual connection that highlights the Paul Weigel Library of Architecture, Planning & Design’s integration into the college and the rest of campus.

Weigel Library features classic furniture designs that are both comfortable and have the potential to inspire creativity. The adjoining Pierce Information Commons, which remains open when Weigel is closed, is a spacious reading and meeting area that faces the beautiful William T. Kemper Foundation Courtyard.

Visit the Patricia Weisenburger Circulation Desk for assistance, or ask about the William A. Stoskopf Special Collections room, which includes approximately 1,175 rare and fragile books, prints, maps and other items.
