Bobst Library has many reservable group and individual study rooms for graduate students, located on Lower Levels 1 & 2, and Floors 4, 6, 8, and 9. These rooms include our graduate collaboratives and dissertation writers’ rooms.

How do I reserve a room?

Log in with your NYU NetID. Enter your preferred time, date, and reservation length. Graduate students may reserve a room for up to 3 hours at a time. You may reserve a room 14 days in advance.

You will receive an email confirmation. For group room reservations, you will be asked to enter the email addresses of your group members and a confirmation will be sent to them as well.

Can I use a study room without a reservation?

Yes, but keep in mind that you may be asked to leave if a user with a reservation arrives.

Study Room Policies

Group and individual study rooms are a popular service. To help this work well for all students, please adhere to the following policies:

  • Rooms cannot be reserved or held by placing personal belongings in them. Materials and personal items left unattended may be removed by library staff.

  • Group rooms may not be reserved or held for a single user only. Single users in a group study room (with or without reservations) will be asked to vacate the room for groups of 2 or more.

  • Bring your confirmation email with you. Students with a reservation always have priority over walk-in users.

  • There is a 10 minute grace period for reservations. If the reservation holder is not present within 10 minutes, the reservation is invalid.
