Law Student Study Rooms:
Due to the popularity and limited amount of study rooms in the library, the following are the reservation policies that only apply to the study rooms.
There are large tables on both floors of the library, each with 3-4 individual seats for reservation. These seats are a great choice for those who love open spaces and natural light. To reserve a seat at a table, change the "Category" drop-down menu to "Tables" on the reservation site.
There are several groups of carrels located throughout the library. The different spaces offer varying levels of natural light, privacy, and noise to choose from based on your preferences. Please note that not every carrel has electricity available. If you will be needing an outlet for your work, be sure to look for a carrel designated with an icon shaped like a plug.
There are twelve study rooms available for reservation on L2. To promote social distancing, capacity is limited to two people. Many study rooms have a monitor to connect to your computer and adapters are available for checkout at the Information Desk. To check if a study room has a monitor, click on the "Info" button next to the room number. To reserve a study room, change the "Location" drop-down menu to "L2 Study Rooms" on the reservation site.
RSO Commons Study Pods and Individual Rooms
The RSO Commons has several pods designated for group work. To reserve a pod, change the "Location" drop-down menu to "L2 Collaborative Commons" and the "Category" menu to "Group Study Pods" on the reservation site.

You can determine which rooms are open by clicking on the room's listing on the reservation site. To reserve one of these rooms, change the "Category" drop-down menu to "Commons Individual Rooms".
