Student Services: Reserve a Study Room

How to Reserve a Study Room

The law library has ten study rooms available for private individual or small-group study. There are five rooms on the lower level (basement), three on the first floor, and two on the second floor. Rooms may be reserved in advance using the binders at the Circulation Desk on the first floor. 

Study Room Rules

Now and then, there is a higher demand for study rooms than there is supply. To accommodate as many students as possible, please abide by the following rules:

  • Study rooms may not be reserved for longer than two consecutive hours at a time unless prior permission is granted by Circulation Supervisor Jane Oakland.
  • If you "overstay" your study room time, another person/group may knock on the door to let you know that your time is up; please be sure to exit promptly and politely. If no other group reserves the time slot after yours, you may stay in the room unless and until another person or group signs up.
  • You may use a study room without reservation if it is empty; just be aware that someone may reserve it at any moment, and those who have signed up have priority.
  • If you have reserved a study room, and you see that someone else is using it when you arrive, please knock and politely let them know that it is your reservation time. Students sometimes "drop in" to the rooms without reserving them or accidentally overstay their reservation time, so just let them know what's going and give them a few moments to collect their belongings and exit.

If you have any questions or concerns about the study rooms, please contact Circulation Supervisor Jane Oakland at
