Please bear in mind:

  • Study rooms are not soundproof and some are in silent study areas or above or below other library spaces – please be considerate of others.
  • We do our best to place groups in a room appropriate for their size and keep the larger rooms available for larger groups.
  • If no rooms are available, you have the option of leaving us your cell number; we’ll send you a text message when the next room becomes available. You will have 10 minutes to pick up the key or the room will go to the next person on the wait list.
  • We can hold the study room key for you at the front desk if you need to leave the library for a short time while still using a room. Do not take study room keys out of the building. If keys are lost, you will be charged a replacement fee of $25.00.
  • If you leave personal items unattended in study rooms after the keys are due back, we will call campus security to remove them and hold them for you.
