Classroom Reservations

Raynor Library has two computer classrooms that faculty and staff may reserve for occasional use. All such requests will be reviewed by the Library's Research and Instructional Services Department.

Completion of this form does not guarantee a reservation.




General availability:

Use of the classrooms for library programming is the library's top priority. Thereafter, requests will be considered on the basis of availability and appropriateness of room use for the group and their training needs.


Who can make reservations?

Reservations may be made either by the instructor or an administrative person responsible for computer lab scheduling. Students may not request reservations.

Non-Marquette Attendees--Access Restrictions may apply:

Events including non-Marquette persons will also need approval from the library's Access Services Department prior to securing a reservation. To simplify the process, please include information about non-Marquette attendees in the form below.  This information will be shared with Access Services for approval.


If you don't need computers for students:

If you would like a room with a computer and overhead projector for the instructor, but do not need computers for the students, please contact the Library Dean's Office at 288-7214 to inquire about room 301.


Black-out periods:

In order to accommodate students working on final projects, classroom reservations are not accepted during the last two weeks of the fall and spring semesters. The library's instruction schedule also limits availability during the fourth, fifth, and sixth weeks of the fall and spring semesters.


Specialized software:

No additional software may be installed on the PCs in the classrooms, although each of the workstations is equipped with the extensive collection of software found on most library computers.


Summer and breaks:

The demand for Raynor's computer classrooms is typically light in the summer and during breaks. However, those wishing to reserve the classrooms at these times should be mindful of the library's reduced hours during these periods.

Please contact us at least one week prior to the desired reservation date.
