Library Group Study Room Rules

  • Group Study Rooms are intended for groups, defined as two or more users actively using the room.
  • Groups may make up to two reservations per day.  Each reservation can be made for a period of 30 minutes up to a maximum of two hours.
    • Be considerate of other groups and DO NOT book rooms for more than the maximum time by using the names of different group members.
    • Your reservation is void if you are more than 15 minutes late. Another group may claim the room.
    • Personal property may not be left unattended in the room to hold the room reservation for a group.
  • Reservations can be made for up to 14 days in advance.
  • Reservations made for single users are not valid; priority will be given to groups with or without a reservation.
  • When not reserved, Group Study Rooms are open on a first come, first served basis.
  • Group Study Room users without a reservation must vacate the room when requested by Library Staff or a group with a valid reservation.

Library Study Room users are expected to follow the UW Tacoma Library Code of Conduct, including:

  • Maintain a moderate noise level - rooms are not soundproof, and loud talking disturbs other users in adjoining rooms and outside the rooms.
  • Personal belongings should not be left unattended in the Library at any time; the Library is not responsible for patrons’ personal belongings.
    • Library materials checked out to your account should be treated as personal belongings. You may be assessed overdue and replacement fees if they go missing from a study room.
