Study Room Booking and Usage Policies

  • Study rooms can be booked for use by CSOL faculty, staff, students and recent graduates. Students are considered recent graduates until the first administration of the Bar Exam after their graduation.
  • Bookings are approved and assigned on a first come, first served basis.
  • Failure to comply with room booking and usage policies may result in suspension and/or loss of the privilege.
  • Study room usage requires a booking.
  • All students using the room must be listed on the booking.
  • When necessary, please cancel with the link provided in your email at least 30 minutes prior to your start time. This will allow other students the opportunity to book the room. Repeated no show/no cancel may result in a suspension/loss of privilege.
  • Study rooms are to be used for academic purposes and are not for social gatherings.
  • Conversation and AV equipment should be kept at a volume that cannot be heard outside of the study room.
  • Food and beverages should be disposed of neatly. Please attend to any spills or messes before you leave.  Wipes are available at the circulation desk.
  • Tabaco/nicotine products of any kind are prohibited.
  • All books should be put away after use.
  • Please erase any work done on whiteboards.
  • Requests for reoccurring bookings and/or special bookings can be submitted to the Access Services Library Assistant for approval.
  • Advance bookings done using the online system will be confirmed/denied via email. If your booking is denied, please check the email for directions on re-submitting.
  • On the day/time of your booking you MUST check in at the circulation desk. Room keys are available upon check in.
  • A 15 minute grace period is allotted for room check in. Following, the booking will be canceled. Cancelled bookings will not be honored.
  • Study room descriptions can be found on the booking page. Just hover the cursor over the (i) icon next to the room number.  Please use the descriptions to choose the room best suited for the needs/size of your group.
  • Study rooms may be booked up to one day in advance using our online system. Rooms may also be booked in advance, or at the time needed, at the circulation desk.
  • Policies for advance bookings done via the online system are as follows:
  • Rooms are booked in half hour increments.
  • Each student has a three hour limit. This includes bookings made in the student’s name AND bookings the student is listed as a group member.
  • All fields on the booking form must be completed as directed.
  • Students listed as group members on one booking may not book the time slots immediately before or after the booking they are listed on. This is consider a “double booking” and will result in both bookings being denied/cancelled.
  • Bookings that do not meet the requirements will be denied with notes for re-submitting.
  • Rooms 108 and 110 may be booked in advance for individual use.
  • Policies for bookings made at the circulation desk are as follows:
  • Advance bookings made at the circulation desk will adhere to the same set of polices listed above for advance online bookings.
  • Individuals/groups who have checked into their booking may renew for up to three additional hours at the circulation desk. This can be done during the last 30 minutes of the first booking and will be based on availability.
  • Real time bookings made at the desk will still be done in half hour increments and will be limited to a maximum of three hours, however, these additional policies also apply:
    • Rooms are assigned based on availability and group size.
    • Students who have already reached the three hour limit on advanced bookings may still book in real time at the circulation desk. (For example: Student X booked a room in advance online for 12-3pm and then returns to the library at 5pm.  That student may book up to an additional three hours, at that time, at the circulation desk.)
    • Students may book rooms other than 108 or 110 for individual use. These bookings will be determined by circulation staff and rooms will be assigned based on availability.
