Group Study Spaces

The law library has seven group study spaces of various sizes, all located on the 2nd (upper) floor of the library and visible on the interactive library map. Study spaces may be reserved online or at the kiosk near the printer/scanner/copier near the circulation desk of the law library. Instructions for reserving a room may be found here.

Group Study Spaces Policies

  • Except for the Heflin Conference Room (205A), study spaces may be reserved and used 24/7.  The Heflin Conference Room (205A) may only be reserved and used during library hours.
  • If your reserved time expires and no one else has reserved the space, you may continue to use the space until the next reservation.
