Study Room Guidelines:

  • Study Rooms are open to any SMC students needing individual or group study space. Unfortunately, rooms are not available for faculty and staff.

  • All rooms must have an active reservation for use. Drop-ins are welcome if rooms are available, but all users must book rooms through the online room reservation system. 

  • Study Rooms may be reserved increments.

  • Students may only have one active room reservation at a time.

  • If a group/individual student fails to appear within 15 minutes of the reserved time, Library staff can cancel the reservation, and another group can book the room. 

  • Back-to-back/ multiple reservations during the same day may not be allowed during busy times of the semester. In addition, these reservations may be canceled by library staff if rooms are in high demand. Current SMC students can make reservations for up to 7 days in advance, with bookable time ranging from 1-4 hours in the summer and up to 2 hours in the fall. 

  • Dry-erase markers and erasers are available for checkout at the Library Service Desk.


Things to remember :

  • Do not leave the room unattended.

  • Study Room keys may not leave the Library.

  • Students are responsible for the condition of the room. Therefore, please clean your study area, dispose of any trash, and leave the room in good condition for the following user(s).

    • Erase whiteboards after use, and return markers to the Service Desk.

    • Please do not move the tables and return chairs to their original place.

  • Study Rooms are not soundproof.  Maintain reasonable noise levels and keep the door closed to prevent noise from leaving the room.

  • “No Shows” forfeit their reservations after 15 minutes

  • Rooms include a flat-screen monitor, DVD/VHS player, whiteboard/chalkboard, and a table with a chair (students should bring their own whiteboard markers or chalk).
