The Marvin K Peterson library is located on the University of New Haven campus on the outskirts of New Haven. The architecture of New Haven is an eclectic mix of buildings structures and landscapes laid out in a 9 square block grid pattern with streets lined with Elm trees. 

Color Schemes

Using highlights of blue and yellow throughout the space will tie to the school colors while also creating a positive response for the people choosing to work in the space. Yellow is considered a very strong color, it is known to boost emotion, self esteem and creativity. The color blue also has a positive response on people. Blue encourages intellectual activity, reason, and logical thought.

Student Survey Response

When students were asked where they choose to study on campus and why, majority of responses concluded that students would not choose to study in the library. Most felt it was dark, dingy and dated. The survey spread over many different majors, and age ranges to get the most accurate information.
