The Commons at Helm Library

WKU’s Helm Library has undergone a transformation to create The Commons at Helm Library—an intellectual hub where students, faculty, and staff gather to share ideas and engage in active learning. 

The Commons at Helm Library is a modern, multipurpose, student-centered space that…

  • offers multiple dining options.
  • provides individual study and collaborative work spaces for students.
  • facilitates student engagement with faculty and staff in an atmosphere where ideas can be formed, shaped, and shared.
  • honors the building’s history as WKU’s first basketball arena.

The Commons at Helm Library is funded through a partnership between WKU Libraries and Aramark. 

Helm Library closed at the conclusion of the spring 2019 semester, and The Commons at Helm Library will open April 18, 2022.
