To cancel a future session that has not already started click on your entry in the student view calendar, and then chose yes to the option asking if you want to cancel the event. We do not typically modify entries, but if you have a demonstrable issue please visit us at the circulation desk so we can review or assist you.
There is a 15-minute grace period attached to your reservation. If your group does not arrive within the grace period the reservation may be void and the room may become openly available.
What can you find in a study room?
Each room contains a large display monitor, an Apple TV, a Windows PC, and a room recording camera. The center of each table has a command console for cables to attach various USB/VGA/HDMI devices.
