Library Introduction for New Students

A welcome guide with important library information and resources

On This Page

The library offers a variety of spaces to study throughout the building. Checkout the sections below for information about our study rooms and other study spaces. 

Study Rooms

We have 6 group study rooms that can fit between 4 and 8 people depending on the room and 8 smaller rooms for 1 to 2 people. The group rooms each include a table, chairs, white board, computer, and wall-mounted monitor. Markers for the whiteboard and equipment for the computer can also be checked out at the front desk. Select study rooms can be reserved online up to 2 weeks in advance, or rooms can be checked out at the front desk. For more information, visit our study room page here.

Open Study Spaces

In addition to the private study rooms, we also offer open study spaces on each floor with a variety of seating and workspace options. 

First Floor
Open study spaces on this floor are considered conversational spaces. Students are welcome to converse and socialize with each other or study together. Rolling whiteboards and rolling TV monitors are available throughout the floor and students can checkout markers or cables from the front desk.

Second and Third Floors
All of the study areas on these floors are for quiet study. Headphones are required for all devices playing videos or sounds, and phone calls or conversations should be moved to the first floor or a study room.

Desks can also be found at the end of the book stacks for easy access to print materials or for a less open workspace.
