How do I request a group study room?

Group Study Rooms

Group study rooms are available for use for current CSI students.

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

Guidelines for Use

  • Availability 
    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/Reserves 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 Use
    Rooms are available for two hours. Rooms 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
    We ask that you please close the door when the room is in use. Please note: even with the doors closed, the rooms are not soundproof! Group conversations must not disturb other library users.
  • Food and Drink Policy
    No food or drinks are allowed anywhere in the library, including group study rooms.  Exception is made for bottled water.
  • Responsibilities of the Registrant
    The student registering for the group is responsible for the  Room Key and good condition of the room and must occupy the room for the entire length of time the room is occupied. Please 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 outside of the library. Keys must be returned to the Circulation/Reserves Desk 5 minutes before the expiration of the time allotted 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 $50.00 will be charged for a lost key.

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