The library and the student centers at Canisius are very nice, up-to-date, and well-maintained, but students usually spend more time at events all over campus—or in dorms—than student centers. The Koessler Athletic Center could use some work, particularly in the nonathlete workout room, but other than that, it's not bad. There are two basketball courts in the KAC, and there's always equipment to use. The library has three floors total, each with plenty of different seating to suit a diverse array of preferences. The first (main) floor is mainly utilized for group projects or those who prefer to chatter while working. There are numerous computers available, both Macs and PCs. There are no computers on the top floor; it's the quiet section. The bottom floor has a few computers and usually isn't very crowded. You are free to chatter there, though. There are hundreds of books organized throughout the entire library. Canisius has a great collection and is always adding books each year from professor or student requests. If the library does not have a book you need, Canisius will order it for you from another library through Connect NY. The librarians are extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
Overall, the campus has pleasing architecture and layout, except for the misfit that is Churchill Tower, which doesn't look like much of anything except a cylinder. Students also may gripe at the distance they have to walk to the Health Science Center for class.
