You now have a second main library.
Centennial Campus now has an iconic intellectual and social center. NC State University has a learning and collaborative space that boldly proclaims our strengths in engineering, textiles, design, and technology. And Raleigh has a new signature building that will attract global attention for its beauty and adventurous architecture.
Almost 100 group study rooms, two amazing new Learning Commons, dedicated areas for faculty and graduate students, state-of-the art technology around every corner, and the inspiring feeling you are going to get when you walk into this building: they all make it well worth a trip to Centennial Campus, even if that trip is not yet part of your daily routine.
Come explore it.
- the face of NC State University in this century

“If you can draw it, you can make it!” That’s the promise of the Makerspace on the 4th floor of the Hunt Library. Here you can create working prototypes, architectural models, and other objects with 3D printers, a 3D scanner, and a laser cutter. Makerspace is just one of the many tools that make the new Hunt Jr. Library the library of the future.
