Quiet study space is available in Memorial Library.

 Group study room

The library has 15 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 15 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 extra-curricular activities.
