Study Rooms

Need a room to do group work in the library? UMD students can book a room in advance!

Even on the spur of the moment, you can stop at the Circulation desk and check out the key to any available room. Although faculty and staff cannot reserve a room in advance, they may check out a room key on a first-come, first-served basis.

The library offers 21 group study rooms, and 11 are bookable. See room descriptions to select a room that will accommodate the size of your group. Check room availability.

If your group plans ahead, you won't have to wait for a room to open up. However, if no rooms are available and you didn't book a room in advance, ask to be placed on a waiting list. We will provide you with a pager and call you when a room becomes available.
