Availability and Use

Study rooms are intended for student collaborative study and group projects. Faculty and staff needing space for classes, meetings, or events should contact Campus Coordination at (562) 944-0351, ext. 5816 to find a suitable space elsewhere on campus.

Groups of two or more people may reserve a study room online with an active NetID and password. Individuals may not reserve a study room for personal use. Individual study is permitted in group study rooms; however, a group with a valid reservation may ask any occupant without a reservation to vacate a room immediately.

Study rooms are available on the upper and lower levels of the library. Each room is equipped with network connections, an electrical outlet and whiteboard. Whiteboard markers may be checked out from the Reference Services Assistant (RSA) at the Reference Desk. A media study room is equipped with a large screen monitor, compatible for use with either a PC or Mac laptop.

Reservations can be deleted if the room is no longer needed. The original reservation email will contain a URL that allows the group to cancel their reservation. If the original reservation email cannot be found, please visit the Reference Desk.
