The south end of the Raynor Library second floor is designated for collaborative study. Students are
encouraged to use this space for project meetings and conversation. Portable white boards with dry erase markers are available for group use in this area.
Quiet study space is available in Memorial Library.
The library has 16 student group study rooms available for use. Some of the rooms can be reserved, some are only available on a first come, first served
basis. A group may use any empty room if it is not reserved.
With only 16 rooms available in Raynor Library, these student group study rooms are a shared resource. We ask that you be considerate of others and help us to
ensure equitable access to these spaces for all members of the university community.
The rooms are designated for group student collaboration, not individual study. While individuals may use a room if it is not scheduled, please be gracious
about surrendering the space if requested by a group. The rooms are also not intended for recurring class meetings, seminars, club meetings, or other
You can make a reservation up to two weeks ahead of time. Reservations are made in half hour increments. Same day reservations must be made
at least one full hour ahead of time.
May I have more than 1 reservation in the system at a time?
You may have up to 3 pending reservations per person.
How long will you hold a reservation if we don’t arrive on time?
Reservations are held until 10 minutes after the reserved time. If the room pass is not checked out within 10 minutes of the reserved
time, others will be allowed to utilize the room for the remainder of the reservation period.
Can I use a student group study room if I am not with a group?
The rooms are designated for group collaboration, NOT individual study. While individuals may use a room if it is not scheduled,
please be gracious when asked to surrender the space if requested by a group.
Can I use a student group study room for tutoring or other formal/informal instruction sessions?
Student group study rooms are intended for use by students for group work. Due to the high demand, we cannot accommodate use of these
rooms for instructional purposes such as recurring class meetings, tutoring sessions, exam reviews etc.
I am a faculty member. May I make a recurring reservation for a student group study room for class purposes?
Sorry, they are not intended for recurring class meetings. We have very few student group study rooms and there is high demand for them.
They are intended for collaborative student use only. Occasional use by a faculty member for a special class session can be accommodated.
Please contact the Circulation desk with questions.
