The study rooms at the library are very popular with Cascadia and UWB students. With spectacular views of campus and great quiet  spaces for groups to collaborate, the study rooms are an increasingly valuable resource. Rooms fill up faster as the quarter winds down, so this is a DIY guide to reserving a room. Students are now able to do this from a computer or mobile device.

On the Campus Library homepage, click on the link for Study Room Reservations circled in red.homepage

You will arrive at a page where the room types, policies, and steps to reserve a room are explained in more detail. A complete list of study room policies can be found here.

The bright green tab labeled “Reserve a space” (circled in red) will take you to a sign-in page, so don’t forget your UW Net ID and password! Once signed it, you can view the study room schedule. (At the bottom of this page is a “Switch to Mobile View” tab for those who prefer the convenience of reserving a room via their phone.)  Beige squares show available rooms, so find one that is open at the time you want and click on it. In the popup, fill in the amount of time you want the study room (up to 2 hours), the number of people in your group, and a public name for the reservation.

A few things to know about the groovy study rooms:

  • Rooms can be reserved up to 2 weeks in advance.
  • Make sure to be on time! If your group does not show up within 15 minutes, someone else can reserve the room.
  • Rooms can be reserved for up to 2 hours and you cannot have more than one room reservations at a time.
  • Study rooms are not soundproof: be cautious of your volume.
  • Before you leave, make sure everything is clean and tidy, and turn off equipment and lights.
  • Several rooms have boxes filled with scratch paper for your convenience.
  • Each room should have 2 Expo pens. If your room does not, feel free to come to the front desk on the first floor to get some. FYI: pens dry out fast, so press the cap firmly until you hear the “click” to ensure it is on tight!
