Learn more about what's available in the group study rooms.

If you have any questions or concerns about the study room equipment please feel free to contact the RU - Camden IT Help Desk located on the main floor of the Paul Robeson Library. Technical Support can also be reached anytime by email at help@camden.rutgers.edu or by phone during operating hours at 856-225-6274.

Who can reserve

At this time, only current Rutgers Students with a valid Rutgers NetID may reserve rooms for study using the reservation system. You will receive an email confirming your reservation at the account associated with your Rutgers NetID.

Reservation length

A study room may be booked for 2 hours per day in 1-hour increments. You may use a total of 8 hours maximum in a period that covers 5 days prior to and after the current date.

You will automatically receive access 5-10 minutes before your reservation and for 15-20 minutes afterwards. If you make a real-time reservation, it could take up to 3-5 minutes before you gain swipe access. 

Cancellations

To avoid losing your time allowance for a meeting you cannot make, you may cancel your reservation online. To cancel a reservation that has not already started, click on your booking in the student view calendar, and then chose yes. If you need assistance with  cancelling your reservation, please visit the circulation desk.

Late arrivals

There is a 15-minute grace period attached to your reservation. If you do not arrive within the grace period, your reservation becomes void and others will be able to book the room.
