Peter P. Mercer Learning Commons

Goals In Common Website Banner


On October 20, 2021, the Peter P. Mercer Learning Commons opened its doors for students, faculty, and staff. Please come and enjoy the new Learning Commons space and the renovated George T. Potter Library. Group study rooms, open study areas, computer stations and printers, and brand new furniture are just some of the highlights of the beautiful new space.
While we are still transitioning from the temporary Library at Linden, some features may not yet be available but will be coming soon. Please feel free to call or email the library with any questions and check our website for hours:


The Ramapo Community Display is complete!

Together, we raised over $109,000!

Check out the 4th floor donor wall in the Learning Commons! Over 240 students, parents, staff/faculty members, alumni, retirees, and Friends of Ramapo purchased a plaque for their names on the Ramapo Community Display.

Thank you to all constituencies for participating!

  • STUDENTS: Showed your school spirit and honored teams/clubs/organizations.
  • PARENTS: Celebrated your current student or alum.
  • STAFF/FACULTY: Commemorated your service or celebrated a milestone.
  • ALUMNI/RETIREES: Continued your forever connection.

YOU are the building blocks of our Ramapo Foundation. Thank you for honoring your affinity for a place we call home, and becoming a part of our newest campus building. Together we are achieving our common goal of making a difference for our students. #RCNJCommonGoals

The Learning Commons Display reflects names added through December 15, 2021.
Additional names will be added in May 2022. Thank you!
