Currently enrolled UNO students are the intended users of the Library’s group study rooms. Others using the rooms will be asked to move to accommodate UNO student study groups (with or without a reservation). Only students with UNO credentials may reserve these rooms. 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.
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.
Other General Info:
All library group study rooms are reserved online on a first come, first served basis.
The Library is divided into study zones.
The first floor is a collaboration zone. Groups are welcome to meet in study rooms or in the open study space. Normal conversational sound levels are expected.
Library users seeking a quieter study floor will find this on the second floor. Researchers on this floor expect others to keep conversation levels low (whispers). Group Study rooms on this floor are available by reservation only.
Library users seeking silence will find this on the third floor. Group work is discouraged on this floor in favor of individual work. This floor also hosts the Midlo Center, the Honors Program, and the Innovation Lab. These three spaces are excluded from the "silence is golden" policy on this floor. Food or drinks are allowed on this floor except near the computers in the Innovation and Game Development Labs.
Scholarly and quiet are expected of students on this floor. The group study rooms are by reservation only. Once your reservation is confirmed, you may check out the room key at the Library's Services Desk. This floor also has a Quiet Computer Lab and Quiet Study Space for student use.
