Circulation / Reserve: Group Study Room

BC and FAU faculty may place materials on reserve in their local library for student use. This includes personal or departmental books and articles, library owned materials, and multimedia items.

Group Study Rooms

The U/C Library provides study rooms to groups of at least two and no more than ten BC or FAU students.

  • Group study rooms are to be used for academic purposes only.
  • Rooms are not to be used for social gatherings, tutoring, non-academic projects, classes, meetings, evaluations, testing, etc.
  • By reserving a study room, the group agrees to abide by the rules and regulations regarding room usage and UCL’s Building Use Policy.
  • Groups are responsible for the condition of the room. If damage is seen upon entering the room, report it to the Check Out Desk immediately.

Library staff has the right to refuse the use of a study room if the UCL, College, or University policies are violated.

Loan Periods & Charges

At least two BC or FAU students must be present with their valid college student ID-card.

  • The room key will be checked out to one person in the group who is responsible for returning it on time to the Check Out Desk.
  • A Study Room is checked out for two hours.
  • A $5.00 per hour fine is charged for late key returns.
  • There is an $81.00 charge for a lost key.
  • Study room keys may not be taken out of the building.

Library Staff will assign the room. We will try to honor your request, but some rooms may not be available due to the size of the group and size of the room. 

If the room has a white board, you may check out markers and an eraser from the Check Out Desk.



The student who checked out the room may “renew” it for two hours if no other group is waiting. Renewals are accepted 10 minutes prior to the expiration time of the room.

New groups that are waiting for an available room are given priority over renewals.

If at any time, all study rooms are occupied and new groups are waiting, any group member who is currently part of a group that has a room MAY NOT sign up for the next available room.

During exams in order to accommodate as many groups as possible, there is no guarantee of the renewal of a study room.

Items Left in Study Room

Please return all library materials to a book truck near the shelves when you are finished.

The U/C Library is not responsible for any personal belonging left in a group study room. Items found in a room will be turned over to Campus Safety in Building 19.

  • Smoking or the use of other tobacco products is prohibited.

  • Food is not allowed in the rooms.

  • Drinks in covered containers are allowed in the rooms.

  • Signs cannot be posted in a group study room.

  • Group study room windows must remain uncovered.
