Most seats in the library are now available for reservations! Reservations can be made up to two weeks in advance via the "Reserve a Space" link on our homepage, or in the moment by scanning the QR code posted by each seat. Individual reservations are limited to four hours and back-to-back reservations are permitted. To see a picture of a seat before you reserve it, click on the seat's listing on the reservation site.
Law Student Study Rooms:
Due to the popularity and limited amount of study rooms in the library, following are the study room reservation policies:
There are large tables on both floors of the library, each with 3-4 individual seats for reservation. These seats are a great choice for those who love open spaces and natural light. To reserve a seat at a table, change the "Category" drop-down menu to "Tables" on the reservation site.
There are groups of carrels located throughout the library. The different spaces offer varying levels of natural light, privacy, and noise. Please note that not every carrel has electricity available. Carrels designated with an icon shaped like a plug have outlets.
There are twelve study rooms available for reservation on L2. Many study rooms have a monitor to connect to your computer and adapters are available for checkout at the Information Desk. Click on the "Info" button next to the room number to see if a room has a monitor. To reserve a study room, change the "Location" drop-down menu to "L2 Study Rooms" on the reservation site.
RSO Commons Study Pods and Individual Rooms
The RSO Commons has several pods designated for group work. To reserve a pod, change the "Location" drop-down menu to "L2 Collaborative Commons" and the "Category" menu to "Group Study Pods" on the reservation site.
There also are four individual study spaces in the Commons. Please note that some of these spaces do not have doors and are open to the rest of the Commons. Click the info button next to a room to see a picture of it. To reserve one of these rooms, change the "Category" drop-down menu to "Commons Individual Rooms".
The tables in the Reference Area on L1 are open seating. These are a great choice if you are looking to host office hours in the library.
Armchairs in the library are open seating.
Other Open Desks
All other seats designated as "Open Seating" do not require a reservation. Be sure to check the sign at a seat before you start working.
