The state-of-the-art Bortz Library was constructed in 2007 and contains 246,500 volumes, 18,000+ periodical titles, electronic catalog, micro-formats, and government documents. Its collection was specifically selected to support Hampden-Sydney's liberal arts curriculum. Ideally equipped for study and research, the library provides ten group study rooms, individual study carrels, computers located throughout, intra-library use laptops available for check-out, and an interlibrary loan system. A coffee bar is located on the main floor of the building with easy access to comfortable reading spots or the reading porch.
The Bortz Library boasts the beautiful Fourth Floor Rotunda, Planisphere, Spalding Map Collection, and Special Collections, all contained on the fourth floor.
The Fuqua Computing Center located on the ground floor manages all administrative and academic computing. The computer lab located in the Computing Center consists of 25 Dell PCs connected to the campus network, which are used for internet and software access. Students living in College-owned housing have direct access to the campus network and to WiFi.
