Group Study Room Policy
Study Rooms are intended to support academic work by University of Alabama students working on group projects or studying together. Priority use of the rooms will be given to students using them for group study. They are not intended for use as individual study carrels or as general-purpose classrooms. Due to the popularity of these rooms, the library has established reservation policies for their use.
Some group study rooms are drop-in while other rooms must be reserved in advance. If rooms that require a reservation are available, then students may reserve them at the time they come to the Library.
The student making the reservation decides what to enter in the "Public name for reservation" and anyone can see that field, information. Your NetID will not be publicly visible. Past room reservation information is kept for statistical purposes and would be disclosed to law enforcement upon request.
Group study rooms are for use by UA students only.
Group study rooms may be reserved only for hours the library is open.
Rooms can be reserved up to one 3-hour block per day and can be booked no more than one week in advance.
Group study rooms are intended for use by groups only. A group is defined as three or more people.
If fewer than three people are in a group study room and a group wishes to use it, the current occupants are expected to vacate the room.
If the room is not occupied by at least 3 people within 15 minutes of reservation time, the reservation will be considered cancelled.
If individuals within the group or the group as a whole are engaging in unacceptable and/or disruptive behavior as stated in the Libraries Code of Conduct, the group will be asked to leave.
The Library is not responsible for the loss or theft of personal property. If you leave the room unattended, you risk the loss of your possessions. Lost and Found items are deposited at the Circulation Services Desk in each Library.
Please show consideration by straightening the room and clearing all trash when vacating.
You are invited to ask for assistance at any of the library's service desks.
