Room Use Policies

  • Only current University of Chicago students, faculty, and staff may book rooms. Other groups may use group studies and library classrooms on a first come, first served basis only and must vacate a room when requested by a group that has booked the room.
  • Group Studies and Library Classrooms may only be used by groups of 2 or more users. Individual users are not permitted to use group studies and library classrooms.
  • Groups can book group studies and library classrooms up to 7 days in advance for up to 3 hours per day. This 3 hour limit applies to the group as a whole, not to individuals within the group.
  • Groups may book Library Classrooms outside of regular teaching hours only. Groups may use library classrooms on a first come, first served basis during regular teaching hours when the rooms are not needed for an instruction session.
  • The OneButton Studio may be booked by individuals or small groups up to 16 weeks in advance for up to 2 hours per day.

See the Library's Policies on Room Use and its policies for Maintaining a Scholarly Environment in the Library for a complete list of policies.
