Study Room Policy and Reservations

Please review the below information prior to placing a study room reservation.

Group Study Room Policy

There are a total of eight study rooms on the second and third floors that may be used by Western University students only. Rooms are available for two or more students who would like to study collaboratively or hold small meetings.

The study rooms may be reserved up to 24 hours in advance for a single study period of four hours. The reservation will be held for 15 minutes, at which time the reservation will be released.

Reservation Instructions

A group study room may be reserved in person at the circulation desk, by calling 909-469-5323, or online at https://booked.westernu.edu. Reservations may be made up to 24 hours in advance of the reservation date. Walk-in requests from groups will be accepted pending room availability. The following information will be needed at the time a reservation is taken:

  • name
  • college or program
  • number (and names) of people in the group
  • date and length of time needed*

* There is a reservation limit of four hours. If, at the end of the group’s time, no other group has scheduled the room, that group may renew it for four more hours.
