University Libraries Group Study Room Reservation Policy:

  • If you arrive 15 minutes or more after your reservation starts, the reservation will be canceled and the room will be opened for other groups to use/reserve.
  • The entire 3rd floor is a Quiet Floor. Please be considerate of the noise levels in all 3rd floor study rooms.
  • Group members must present Shocker ID when checking in at the Circulation desk.
  • Room keys must be returned to the Circulation Desk at the end of the room reservation time. Keys returned after closing time are subject to a $5 overdue fine. Failure to return a room key will result in a $50 re-keying charge.
  • Rooms may be reserved for up to 3 hours of time per day per group.
  • Reservations can be made up to 7 days in advance.
  • If no reservation is on the schedule for a particular room, it is considered first come, first serve.
  • Patrons who do not comply with the Library Facilities Policy when using study rooms or whose behavior incurs damage to the property may have their reservation privileges revoked.
