Group Study Room Policies

Reservation Policies 

  • Reservations are accepted only for hours when the Service Desk is open Monday–Friday.
  • Only one reservation per person per day is accepted.
  • No same-day reservations--all reservations must be made before 11 p.m. the night before.
  • Reservations can be made up to 7 days in advance. 
  • Daily reservations will be posted outside each room.
  • You will receive a confirmation email if your request was approved. On the day of the reservation, the name of the group member who reserved the room will be listed on the room’s schedule. 

General Rules Regarding Library Group Study Rooms

  • Rooms are for the exclusive use of 2 or more users. 
  • Rooms are intended only for collaborative study; they are not for meetings, tutoring, classes or other non-study uses.
  • All rooms are open after the Service Desk closes. 
  • The rooms are for all students, so we ask that you erase any writing from the whiteboards. The housekeeping staff cleans off the whiteboards each night. 

Unused Rooms

  • If a reserved room is not claimed within 10 minutes of the start of the reservation, the reservation is forfeited and is open to any group until the next reservation. 
  • When reservable rooms are unused, they are open to any group. Groups must yield the room when those having reservations arrive. 

Open Rooms

  • Four rooms are always open and cannot be reserved. No restrictions apply. 

Sound Issues

  • Rooms are not sound-proof. Be respectful of others.
  • If a group is too loud ask them to be quiet yourself or let the staff at the Service Desk know. You can call the Service Desk at 314.446.8361.
  • After the first noise warning, Public Safety will be summoned for subsequent disturbances.
  • Student Honor Code stipulates that quiet should be maintained in the Library because it is a designated study area. 

Unattended belongings:

  • The Library is not responsible for the loss or theft of personal property.
  • Unattended belongings may be removed after 20 minutes.
