Q. Do I need to check in for my room?
A. If you have already placed a reservation for the room, you can go straight to the room. If you do not have a reservation, please place a reservation online, via the designated computer terminal at the library, or see library staff for assistance.

Q. What if someone's in my room when I show up for my reservation?
A. Let staff know. Staff will make sure the person who has the reservation gets the room. Please do not use a different room - it will complicate other reservations throughout the day.

Q. What if I need to cancel my reservation?
A. You can cancel your reservation at any time. Save your confirmation email - it contains cancellation instructions.

Q. Can I still use a study room after I've used my maximum allotted hours?
A. Rooms that are not reserved or currently in use are open to the public. Please note however, users with reservations take priority.

Q. Are there whiteboards and markers in the study rooms?
A. We have one whiteboard with an easel paper pad that is available upon request (first come, first serve). Supply your own dry erase markers.

Q. Do the study rooms have A.V. equipment?
A. Study rooms 5 - 8 come equipped with TV monitors and ports to accommodate a VGA connection. VGA cords are available at the Computer Help desk with a library card or ID. Otherwise, please supply your own cords and/or adapters as needed.

Q. Can I eat or drink in the study rooms?
A. Food is limited to small-sized, commercially-wrapped items. Covered, non-alcoholic beverages are permitted.

Q. Are there any other expectations for using the study rooms?
A. Users of the study rooms are responsible for leaving the rooms in a neat and orderly condition.  Users must maintain a quiet-study like atmosphere, and discussions should take place at conversational levels.  Additionally, due to fire code regulations users may not move or add pieces of furniture to the room.
For your security, please do not leave unattended items in the study rooms.
