Students Flock to Group Study Spaces in Rutgers University Libraries

February 18. 2016

Too lazy to clean? Don't want your study group in your personal space? Use the Libraries' group study spaces instead.

Four weeks ago Rutgers University Libraries launched a new room reservation system that allows students to reserve blocks of time in group study spaces. So far, 755 unique users have made use of the new system and we have processed 4,650 reservations in 6 libraries. The Library of Science and Medicine has been the busiest location—their three rooms have been booked, on average, more than 75% of the available time.

The Libraries’ group study spaces offer secure, clean, and quiet places for collaboration on group projects or for small group study. Many of the rooms are stocked with technology—computers, whiteboards, and displays—making them an ideal place to work on multimedia projects. And while many libraries already offer quiet study areas, the group study rooms are perfect for students looking for a secluded and noiseless oasis on campus.

Reservations can be made up to two weeks ahead of a meeting date or at the last minute if a room is available. See each library for specific guidelines for their group study spaces. To learn more about how to make a reservation, please visit our group study room site.

Tip: If the Library closest to you is booked up, don’t give up! Use the online reservation to find rooms at other campus locations!
