Group Study Room FAQs

Can I reserve a room in advance?

Rooms are available on a first come, first served basis. You may not reserve them. 

What equipment is in the study rooms?

With the exception of the Oregon Rooms, all group study rooms are equipped with a desktop computer. If you need additional computers, you can check out laptops at the Circulation Desk.

Most group study rooms have white boards for your use. Please use dry erase markers only and erase your work before you vacate the room.

What are the rules for using the study rooms?

Do not leave your personal property unattended in the group study rooms, even for a short time. The Library is not responsible for lost or stolen items. If you exit a study room and leave personal property inside, Library staff may remove it.

Leave group study rooms clean and tidy for the next group. Dispose of trash, clean the white board, sign out of the computer, and arrange the furniture the way you found it.
