About the Library: Study Room Reservations

Group & Single Study Spaces

Study Room Guidelines

The William M. Brish Library is equipped with 3 single study and 2 group study rooms as well as a Quiet Study space. Current HCC students may reserve the study rooms for up to 4 hours per day according to the guidelines listed below.

Users

Current HCC students have precedence in reserving and using study rooms.  Faculty/staff and community members may use study rooms on a walk-in basis if students do not need them.  Study rooms are intended for academic work related to HCC courses.

Group Study Room Use

Groups take precedence in use of the group study rooms.  Individuals may use the room on a walk-in basis if no group is present but must be prepared to vacate the room if a group requests it. Exceptions can be made at library staff discretion.

Group Arrival Times

Group Study rooms can be reserved in advance, but all members of the study group must arrive together to claim the room. The room cannot be held by one member. The reservation is cancelled after 15 minutes of a no show.

Group Room Supplies

Supplies for group study rooms are available for check-out at the circulation desk.  These include whiteboard markers, erasers, remotes, and connectors for the TVs provided.

Reservation Limits

Group Study Rooms may be reserved for 2-hour blocks and single study rooms for 1-hour blocks.  The same group or individual may request a maximum of 4 hours per day.  Students may reserve only one room per day.  The library reserves the right to delete multiple bookings if a student is over their allotted time.

Advance and Recurring Reservations

Reservations may be made up to five business days in advance.  Recurring reservations may be made only for students with disabilities.  Exceptions must be approved by the Library Coordinator.

No-Shows

If the person or group holding a reservation has not arrived within 15 minutes after the reservation start time, the reservation will be cancelled, and other patrons will be allowed to use the room.

Room Abandonment

Leaving study rooms or abandoning items for longer than 15 minutes will result in cancellation of booking.  Items may be removed to make way for other occupants.

Noise Level

Groups agree to keep conversations quiet and be respectful of other library patrons.

Condition After Use

Users agree to leave their room in a neat and clean condition, including shutting the door when leaving.

Sleeping

Sleeping is prohibited in the study rooms.

Food

Drinks and dry snacks are permitted in study rooms.  Please consume meals elsewhere.

Guideline Violations

Users violating these guidelines may forfeit the right to use a study room for a term to be decided by library staff.
