Group Study Room Policy for libraries in New Brunswick and Piscataway


Group Study rooms are intended as a place for students to work and study together. They are not intended for either individual study or socializing.

Who can reserve rooms?

Only current Rutgers Students, Faculty, or Staff with a valid Rutgers NetID may reserve rooms for group study.

How do I reserve a group study room?

Group Study Rooms may be reserved through our online reservation system at: http://libcal.rutgers.edu

When can we reserve the room?

Rooms may be reserved up to 2 weeks in advance.

How many people do we need to reserve a room?

Groups must have at least 2 people.

How long can we have the room for?

4 hours per day.  Groups may stay beyond their reserved time if no one else has reserved that room.


You will receive an email confirming your reservation that includes a link you can use to cancel your reservation. The confirmation email is sent to your email account associated with your Rutgers NetID. You must cancel within 1 hour of your reserved time slot.

Late Arrival

There is a 15-minute grace period attached to your reservation. If your group does not arrive within the grace period the reservation is void and the room becomes openly available.

Usage Policies

Anyone who reserves a room is expected to clean up after themselves and leave the room ready for the next group.

Please use only appropriate markers and erasers on the whiteboards. If you do not have your own dry-erase markers or erasers, you can check some out at the Circulation Desk.
