Cabell's group study rooms provide space and technology to support collaboration. Most rooms are equipped with whiteboards and markers; power, networking, and wireless for laptops; and PCs with large plasma screens or large plasma screens with laptop ports.
Use of Rooms
- Reserve rooms online.
- You can reserve rooms for 30, 60, 90, or 120 minutes at a time.
- Each member of your group can reserve a room up to three times each week.
- You can reserve a room up to 14 days in advance.
- A group is two or more people, one of whom must be a VCU student, faculty, or staff member. Groups have priority over individuals, and one member of a group may not "hold" the room for others.
- Individuals may be asked to vacate group study rooms when groups are in need of collaborative study space. Individuals seeking a quiet space are encouraged to use either the Quiet Floor (3rd Floor) or Silent Study (4th Floor).
- If a room is empty, your group may use it on a first-come, first-served basis. We recommend that groups reserve the room they're using.
- Bring a copy of your reservation with you. A printout of the e-mail or a handheld device displaying the confirmation e-mail will do.
- If your group does not claim the room within 15 minutes of a scheduled reservation start time, the room will be made available to others.
- Individuals who need temporary access to a study room may request special assistance at the Cabell Library research assistance desk (804) 828-1101.
- Rooms are not locked and are available whenever the library is open.
- Rooms are monitored by Library staff and security guards, who are available to answer questions and to assist you.
- VCU and VCU Libraries policies apply to group study rooms, including Use of Library Facilities. (PDF)
- Please be courteous to others and recycle or dispose of any trash before you leave.
