  • Items left behind for more than an hour may be removed and held at the library front desk in order to make the study room available to other users.

  • Study room users should choose rooms of appropriate size for the number of people studying together.

  • During times of peak occupancy, single occupants and small groups may be asked to relocate to smaller rooms if their rooms are needed for larger groups.
