Group study rooms can be reserved with your JHED ID.

How long?
You can reserve rooms for as short as 60 minutes, or as long as 2 hours.

You can reserve rooms for a total of 2 hours per day.

You may reserve a room up to and inclusive of tomorrow at midnight.

-- That is, no matter what time it is now, you can reserve a room to use any time from now through tomorrow at 12 midnight


  • Reservations have priority over walk-ins.
  • Groups of two or more patrons get priority over one person.
  • BLC group study rooms require a J-card to enter; MSEL group study rooms are never locked.
  • If a room is not occupied within the first 10 minutes of the reservation block, the room is then free for all groups to use.
  • The reservation system cannot do a transfer of a reservation to another user.
  • Students can't reserve non-group study rooms (such as BLC 4040 or MSEL C-level Seminar Room), but may use them when they are not being used by library staff.


Group study room locations and how many there are:
  • A-level: 3
  • B-level: 6
  • C-level: 9
  • D-level: 2


  • Q-level: 2
  • M-level: 6
  • A-level: 1
  • B-level: 6
  • C-level: 3

  1. Hi -- you can't seem to book rooms off of library hours. Is that purposeful?

  2. If a person who has the reservation find a group of two in his room, does the person who has the reservation or the group of two have the right to the room?

  3. The person with the reservation has priority, unless you were late in claiming the room.
