How to make Reservations

Instructions for reserving a seat in the campus Library Learning Commons

  1. Click the "Book Study Room" button at the top of this page. On the screen that follows, select a library location, and a room capacity. Then click the "Show Availability" button.
  2. On the Booking page (see reference image), use the “Go To Date” button or the left and right arrows to select a date for your reservation. If there are no seats available at the current time, a "Next Available" button will also appear. NOTE: You will only see availability for two weeks in advance.
  3. Scroll through the room options for the date. Rooms are labeled according to room number and capacity. We've also indicated whether the seat is wheelchair accessible and if there is access to power nearby. You can click on the “Info” button in front of each room for a brief description of the space and any unique characteristics it might have (some have computers, video cameras, etc.).
  4. Availability is indicated on the grid in green. When you click a green box, in most spaces you are selecting a one (1) hour reservation block. You can book as little as 60 minutes and as long as three (3) hours for most rooms.
  5. When you click a green box it will become orange to indicate your selection. You are also placing a temporary hold on this time slot. If you navigate away from this page, the time slot will appear “Unavailable” until you complete your reservation or after 3 minutes of inactivity.
  6. Once selected, your requested time slot will also be displayed at the bottom of the page as text. In the drop-down menu you can adjust your ending time if a one (1) hour reservation is not what you want. You can click the trash icon (next to the drop-down) to cancel your selection and to make another choice from the grid. 
  7. If you are satisfied with your selection, click the “Submit Times” button. You will see a screen that goes over the terms and conditions of the reservation.
  8. On the screen that follows, you will need to fill in your information. Please use ONLY your email address! Others will be blocked. Click "Submit My Booking."
  9. You should then see a confirmation screen and receive a confirmation email (check your spam/junk folder if you do not). Please be prepared to show your reservation confirmation at the LLC to be checked in to your study room. You may use a mobile device (screen shot), laptop computer, or print out.
  10. When you are done, you can "check out" of the study room with the link and code in your confirmation email, the "check out" button at the top of this page, or with staff on your way out. Please remember to check out! Users who stay beyond their appointment time may be asked to make another reservation for another space, pending availability.

Reserve by Seat Photos & Info

Reserve your seat based on whether you like a standard seat, a high-top table, a seat at a single table, a seat at a shared table, or even a seat in a cafeteria setting. Check out photos of our seating below.

Video Instructions

Please note that this video was made when we offered single seat reservations. We no longer offer single seat reservations, but this video may still be helpful for those needing visual instruction, as reserving a study room uses essentially the same process.
