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.

If neither room is available:

Students can use the 2 MediaScape pods in the northwest and southwest corners of the 5th floor. The pods have privacy shields so groups can collaborate without disturbing nearby classes. The pods are first-come, first-served.

There are also lounge areas on the 4th, 5th, and 10th floors of the NYU Midtown Center building.
