Do you need a space to study with your classmates? Visit the PLC to use a study room.

Reservation Periods: Students may reserve study rooms up to 24 hours in advance. The minimum booking time is 30 minutes, and the maximum is 4 hours.

  • The reservation must start and end during the 24-hour window.
    Example: It is 8:00 am on Monday and you want to reserve a room from 7:00am-11:00am on Tuesday. This reservation will not go through on Monday at 8:00am. You will need to wait until Monday at 11:00am to reserve a room the next day that will end at 11:00am.
  • At the end of your first reservation, you can reserve up to an additional 4 hours.

Occupancy: Most rooms accommodate up to 4 – 5 people. Study Room 100 accommodates up to 12 people.

Late Arrivals: The reservation will be held for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, the reservation will be released.

Whiteboards: Study rooms 306, 307, 308, 309, and 310 contain mobile whiteboards. Whiteboard markers are available at the 1st floor Library Services desk.
