Hoover Library has seven group study rooms and one single study room. During the regular academic year, these are limited to student use, or for faculty/staff working with students. During the summer, they are available for faculty and staff use, as well as students. If you would like to reserve a Group Technology Room, see our Group Technology Room reservation form.
The group study rooms are designated as spaces where discussion and conversation is permitted at a reasonable level, and are not intended for quiet or private study. Likewise, they are not intended as areas for socializing, napping, or other non-study activities. The Phillips Single Study Room is meant for quiet private study only.
Policies for use:
Rooms can be booked up to thirty days in advance.
Please be considerate of people studying nearby and use quiet conversation.
Reservations have priority. If you are using a space and do not have a valid reservation, you must leave when asked by a group that has a valid reservation. If a group room is open and your group needs a place to work, you may use the available space until a group with a reservation arrives.
There is a 15 minute grace period for reservations: if your group is not present within 15 minutes of the start of your reservation, you will lose the remainder of the hour and another group may use that space.
If you leave a space unoccupied for more than 15 minutes, another group may take it. Any belongings found in an unoccupied space may be turned in to the lost and found at the circulation desk, but the library is not responsible for the loss of unattended items.
As a courtesy to others, please cancel your reservation if you will not be using the space. To do so, simply click the link provided in your booking confirmation.
Please refer any issues to staff at the circulation desk.
