The Research Commons is a high level research environment intended for exclusive use by postgraduate students at Masters and Doctoral level, as well as Researchers and Academic staff of the University of KwaZulu-Natal. The aim is to create an environment conducive for research exchange and production.
The concept of the Research Commons is to develop specialized facilities, combine research and social space and increase library support for researchers across all campus libraries.
Experienced library staff members are on hand to assist with users' information needs and to arrange consultations with subject specialists as needed. The Research Commons is entered via swipe card.
