The Center for Academic Achievement's goal is to assist all students to become independent learners. To aid all students' progress, the Center provides appropriate resources and services to all undergraduate and graduate students. We match students with tutors, advise students with study skills and time management, and offer help to students learning English as a Second Language, as well as accommodate students with disabilities.
Housed in Lefavour Hall on Simmons' main campus, the Simmons College Library offers a comfortable and productive environment for learning, including an array of group study rooms, meeting rooms, event spaces, and quiet study areas.
