  • Rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  They cannot be reserved in advance.
  • The group computer work room may be used by a group for two hours at a time.
  • After two hours the key must be returned to the Library's Circulation Desk on the 3rd floor.
  • Fines will be charged if the key is not returned on time to the Circulation Desk.
  • A group can renew access to a room for an additional two hours at the Circulation Desk only if no other group is waiting to use the room.
  • Study rooms and partitioned areas are not sound proof and groups studying should not create noise levels that would disrupt other students in surrounding areas.
  • Upon leaving the room, the group should make sure that the door is securely closed and locked.
  • Return key immediately to the Circulation Desk on 3rd Floor when finished using the room.
