The Library does not provide private spaces for individuals. A student seeking a quiet place should visit the second floor which is designated the silent floor.

Group study rooms for all students:

Groups of 2 or more have several options. The Collaborative Workrooms on the first floor, room 211 on the second floor, and rooms 308 and 309 on the third floor may by creating a WCOnline account. After registering for an account, students may view availability and reserve a Collaborative Workroom for up to three hours. Those who have previously created WCOnline accounts with the Academic Support and Access Center must create a separate account to reserve Collaborative Workrooms. 

The study rooms at the back of the second and third floors are available to groups on a first come, first served basis. Groups meeting on the second or third floors must respect the quiet policies of those floors.
