Group Study Room Policies
- Group study rooms are available and dedicated for use by University of Louisville students (2 or more) for collaborative study and group projects.
- Individual users are not permitted to reserve group study rooms. Individuals can make use of group study rooms while they are vacant, however the library reserves the right to ask single occupants to vacate a room immediately for a group of two or more University of Louisville students.
- If a group doesn’t show up within 15 minutes of the start of their reservation, it has forfeited the space. If, following 15 minutes, only one group member is present, then they may also be asked to vacate the room.
- Reservations must be made by a student with a louisville.edu email address.
- Students who are found to be occupying a group study room when another student group has it reserved will be asked to vacate immediately. Habitual issues in this regard may result in suspension of group study room privileges and/or other library privileges.
- Posters, notes, and other items may not be hung on walls or windows. Windows are not to be covered or obstructed.
- The library is not responsible for the security of personal items. Any items left in rooms after the end of the reservation period may be removed by Library staff and placed in the Library's lost and found.
