Library Study Rooms

Current UNE students, faculty and staff may use study rooms in each campus library on a first come, first served basis. All study rooms have a table/writing surface, chairs and a whiteboard (ask for markers at the information desk).

What can I use study rooms for?

Study rooms are for individual or group study. Study rooms are not soundproof and some are in silent study areas – please be considerate of others.

How can I get a study room?

The doors to the study rooms remain locked. To use a room, ask for its key at the information desk.

Can I reserve a study room?

Study rooms cannot be reserved. The Registrar’s Office maintains a system for booking classrooms and other spaces for meetings, lectures and other events. 

Can I ask to use any room?

We do our best to place groups in a room appropriate for their size and keep the larger rooms available for larger groups.

How long can I use the room?

You can use study rooms for 2 hours at a time. If there is no wait list, you may renew the room for 2 more hours — ask at the information desk.

What if I want to use a study room, but none are available?

If no rooms are available, you have the option of leaving us your cell number — we’ll send you a text message when the next room becomes available. You will have 10 minutes to pick up the key or the room will go to the next person on the wait list.

What if I need to leave the library while I am still using a study room?

We can hold the study room key for you at the Information Desk if you need to leave the library for a short time while still using a room. Do not take study room keys out of the building. If keys are lost, you will be charged a replacement fee of $25.

If you leave personal items unattended in study rooms after the keys are due back, we will call campus security to remove them and hold them for you.
