Study Rooms & Quiet Space

Looking for a quiet space to study during finals?
Remember, the 3rd and 4th floors are designated quiet spaces; noise level may be monitored during extended hours and finals. Comfortable open study areas are available on both floors.

Interested in reserving a study room?  
Stop at the circulation desk and reserve a study room for up to 3 hours. Study rooms are located on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th floor. Please note, students using a reserved area will be asked to vacate the room.

Already have a favorite space to work?
Create your own quiet space. We have free ear plugs (disposable) available at the print station on the second floor.
