Book a Group Study Room

After a successful pilot program in the spring of 2016, ALL group study rooms are now booked online!

Students may book group study rooms online using the College's 25Live calendarInstructions on how to book a group study room online are available here.

Guidelines for booking online:

  • Rooms must be booked at least one hour in advance and up to one week in advance.
  • You may only book for group use (2 or more students).
  • Book the room for up to 2 hours.
  • The Event Title must be your FULL NAME & YOU must present your Hillcard at the Circulation Desk to check-out the room key.
  • Once you enter your date/time preference and select SAVE, your booking is Tentative until confirmed by Circulation Staff via email.
  • Bookings will be denied if:
    • They are longer than 2 hours.
    • If you do not list the names of the students in your group.
    • If you attempt to book multiple bookings on the same day.
  • Please check your email for confirmation, which you should receive within 30 minutes.

 Additional information:

  • Stop at the Circulation Desk prior to your confirmed booking to check-out the room key.
  • Please be ON TIME for your booking.
  • We strongly recommend that groups book a room at least one day and up to 2 weeks ahead.
  • We do allow an individual to check out a room key if no groups are waiting for a room. Individuals may not book a room in advance.


  • Please be kind to our student employees and staff; we are doing our best to accommodate as many students as possible.
  • We have 13 group study rooms to serve a campus population of nearly 2500.
  • Rooms may not be renewed due to the heavy volume of use. When your 2 hours are up, you need to leave the room and return the key, promptly. Library staff should not need to remind you.
  • Purpose: the group study rooms are intended to provide a place where a group of students can meet to work on a project or prepare a presentation.


  • Try to avoid the busiest times of the day: 2:00-5:00pm and 6:30-10:30pm. Rooms are often open on weekends.
  • Try out the Disco; create a large table, use the technology to project your work.
  • Find a large table on the 1st floor (we don’t expect the 1st floor to be quiet) and grab a white board.
  • The Info Café might be available, ask at the Reference Desk.
  • Looking for a Quiet space: find a study carrel or a comfy chair on the 2nd or 3rd floor. Try out Rm. 106 (across from the Circulation Desk) on the 1st floor.
