Dugan Library and Campus Center

About the Facility

The Dugan Library and Campus Center, named for John E. and Marilyn K. Dugan of Wichita, is the hub for campus life at Newman University. The two-story, 56,000 square-foot facility serves as an inviting and stimulating academic, social and cultural center for students, faculty, alumni and the greater Wichita community.

In addition to the state-of-the-art library, the center's ground floor houses a gathering space, a bookstore/convenience store, a café, a student center with study areas and a computer lab, and a conferencing center.

Inside the main entrance is the gathering space provided by Archie and Jean Macias furnished for studying and lounging. The NU Bookstore and Marketplace are close by providing books, NU gear and more. In The Marketplace you'll find Scooter's for brick-oven pizzas, NuWay burgers and a whole host of specialty drinks.

Students can gather around the fireplace in the Fugate Student Center, watch their favorite shows on a big screen television, or play a game on the pool, foosball or ping pong tables.

Another feature of the ground floor is the Dugan-Gorges Conference Center. To schedule an event, contact Michelle Giammasi.

In addition to more library space on the second floor, visitors will find the Tarsicia Roths, ASC Alumni Center. The center includes a formal lounge with fireplace which views to the balcony overseeing the Newman's Founders Plaza. A board room is also available for meetings.
