  • A member of the group must take primary responsibility for the room by signing the agreement and leaving a valid photo ID at the library services desk in exchange for the room key. This individual must remain in the room with the group for the full duration. The ID will be returned ONLY to the person to whom it belongs. 


Study Rooms are Limited to Three (3) Hours

  • Group study rooms may be reserved for periods of up to 3 hours per day per group.
  • After 3 hours, a group may continue to use the room until another group needs the room.
