Several group study rooms located in Glenn G. Bartle Library, the Science Library and the UDC Library can be reserved up to two weeks in advance using the reservations links on the Libraries website.
The Libraries have 3 locations with many different types of study spaces. All locations have quiet and noisier spaces, group study rooms you can reserve up to two weeks in advance, computers you can use, library staff to help you, and printing for notes and study materials. Many spaces have dry erase boards and dry erase markers you can check out for use.
Bartle Library has the most space for studying and is open the latest; during finals it will be open for studying 24/7. You’ll find plenty of study rooms, quiet spaces in the East Reading Room, North Reading Room, and on the 4th floor after 5 p.m. The Innovation Lab is another great space, but it can get noisy depending on the number of students working at one time.
The Science Library has a very quiet ground floor and noisier and more active 1st and 2nd floors.
