What can study rooms be used for?

Study rooms are used for a variety of purposes, including group study, private study, meetings, interviews, and so on. Tutors may use the study rooms as long as they abide by the library’s general tutor policy. The library code of conduct still applies in study rooms, and users may be asked to leave if there’s a problem.  

Are study rooms soundproof?

No, study rooms are not soundproof. While using a study room, keep conversations or phone calls at low volume and be mindful of your neighbors. It is normal to hear background noise, voices, etc. from other rooms or the hall. You’re welcome to speak to a staff member if the noise from other users becomes distracting, but we cannot guarantee silence.

Law firms, businesses, and other organizations have the additional option to reserve a meeting room using the online room reservation system. Please refer to Meeting Room information below.
