The library offers a variety of study spaces from individual carrels to study rooms of varying sizes. Study rooms can fit four to eight but larger configurations are available on request. All rooms include whiteboards and most have media viewing capabilities. While quieter, the rooms are not soundproof, please be respectful of your neighbors, erase the whiteboards, and leave the room as clean as possible for the next user. The rooms are currently available on a first-come-first-served basis but we are looking into scheduling them.
