Use of Group Study Rooms

Study rooms are available on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floor of the Library. The Library is now taking reservations for groups of 3 or more for Group Study Rooms on the Library's 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors. Reserve a room now through our convenient room reservation system. Once you reserve a room, you will receive an email requesting that you confirm your reservation. If you do not confirm your reservation, your room will not be reserved. Please make sure to confirm your reservation!

Each study room has a whiteboard or a Smart Board. No outside markers can be used on whiteboards or Smart Boards. Items needed for boards are available at the 3rd floor service desk with proper ID. You are responsible for damages to the room's Smart Board, whiteboard, or other equipment.

One individual cannot be left in a room to save it while other group members leave the Library. Individuals cannot leave their belongings in a study room unattended. If this occurs, library staff will remove the belongings from the room. The removed items will be taken to the Circulation Department's Lost and Found, and held there until they are claimed. Items of value not claimed will be turned over to the campus police. Library circulation will hold items not picked up by Campus Police for thirty (30) days before disposing of them. If you have any questions, contact the Circulation Desk at (956) 665-2005.

If there are complaints about excessive noise in a study room, library staff will approach the group and ask them to please keep the noise down. If they do not comply they will be asked to leave the Library.

Any refusal to comply with any of these policies will result in campus police being asked to intervene and a report may be sent to the Dean of Student for disciplinary action.
