How do I request a group study room?

Group Study Rooms

The CSI Library provides five group study rooms located on the 2nd Floor that are available for two-hour bookings by CSI students working in groups of two to six. Group study rooms can be booked at the Circulation/Reserve Desk on the 1st floor of the library.

Guidelines for Use

  • Bookings
    Group study rooms are available on a first come, first serve basis. A group member must present a valid CSI ID Card to the Circulation/Reserve Desk staff in order to receive a Reservation Card and Room Key. Two or more group members must be present to check-out a study room.
  • Occupancy
    Undergraduate study rooms can be used by groups of no less than 2 and no more than 6 individuals. Graduate study rooms can be used by no less than 4 and no more than 12 people. No more than one room can be used by a single group at a given time.
  • Length of Booking
    Rooms are booked for two hours. Bookings can be renewed at the end of the two-hour period provided that there are no other groups waiting to use the room.
  • Noise and Disturbances
    Although we ask that you close the door when the room is in use, this does not soundproof the room! Group conversations must not disturb other library users.
  • Food and Drink Policy
    No food or drinks are allowed anywhere in the library.  Exception is made for bottled water.
  • Responsibilities of the Registrant
    The student registering for the group is responsible for the Reservation Card, Room Key, and good condition of the room and must occupy the room for the length of the booking. Dispose of all trash, return all furniture to its original arrangement, and lock the door on the way out.
  • Returning Keys
    Keys are non-transferable and may not be taken from the library. Keys must be returned to the Circulation/Reserve Desk 5 minutes before the expiration of the booking and within 15 minutes of the library’s closing. A fine of $10.00 will be charged for every 15 minutes the key is late. A fine of $25.00 will be charged for a lost key.

Violation of these guidelines will result in the loss of library privileges, which includes a four-week loss of privileges to check-out group study rooms, laptops, textbooks, and circulating books.
