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.
