3 Study rooms located in the Beryl Ivey Library.
The study rooms are available from the opening of the library until 15 minutes before closing.
Study room keys are checked out for 3 hours. Study rooms may be reserved for a 3 hour period, per group. Users are encouraged to sign up in advance to ensure room availability. The rooms are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis, and must be used by two or more students. To allow all users equal access to study rooms, reserving of rooms for more than one 3 hour period per day is not allowed. Renewals are allowed as long as the next available time-slot is open. Back-to-back bookings by the same group of students are not permitted.
Users who have reserved a study room are welcome to begin using the room as soon as their booking time becomes available. Access to study rooms is open to all students and it is the borrower's responsibility to inform current users that the room has a booking. Students who have booked a study room have priority over those currently occupying the space.
Note: Study room reservations will be forfeited if the signing individual has not checked out the key within 10 minutes of the reserved time-slot.
