Group Study Rooms: Policy

Group Study Rooms Policy

Group Study Room Policy

Only currently enrolled UNO students may reserve these rooms. Others using the rooms will be asked to move to accommodate UNO student study groups (with or without a reservation).  There are 15 group study rooms available for students to reserve for group work. Please note that the University Administration or the Library may reserve these rooms for special events such as the Homer Hitt Scholarship interviews and InnovateUNO. Please ask for assistance at the Library Services Desk with help in locating these rooms or check the Library's floor maps.

Take care of our group study rooms! It is the responsibility of the groups using the rooms to keep them clean. The Library will document users who do not clean up after using the room. Repeated issues with cleanliness will lead to the suspension of reservation privileges. Rooms that are too dirty for use will be taken out of use until they can be cleaned.

Reserved Group Study Rooms in the Learning Commons (rooms 1-5) have a table, chairs, a whiteboard with markers and erasers, and wireless internet access.

Reserved Group Study Rooms on the Library's 2nd Floor (rooms 41-46) have a table, chairs, and whiteboards.

Reserved Group Study Rooms on the Library's 4th Floor (rooms 418-423 and 425-428) have a table, chairs, whiteboard, and 42" wall-mounted computer monitor.
