Classrooms and Study Spaces
In addition to our galleries and computer labs, our libraries are home to classrooms and spaces for studying and video viewing.
Reserve a study room or carrel
Students and others may book or apply for certain Library spaces.
Graduate students, faculty and certain undergraduates can apply for year-long use of a desk in the University Library.
Rooms for classes and groups
University and Mudd Library facilities include seminar rooms, active learning spaces, and video viewing rooms for classes and groups.
Seminar Rooms can be reserved Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm, through the Registrar's Office. After 5 pm and on weekends, they are considered study rooms and reserved through the Library's reservation system.
