The intention of library study rooms is to provide a reservable space that provides privacy for an individual or group for a specified time. The policies below are intended to make reservable spaces broadly available for UW-Madison students, faculty, and staff.

Repeated violations of these or other library policies could result in action including – but not limited to – deletion of reservations or removal of an individual’s ability to make reservations.

  • Individuals or organizations are limited to a maximum of 4 hours per day across all study rooms.
  • Cancel your reservations if they will not be used. Rooms should not be reserved regularly for potential or just-in-case situations.
  • A reservation is forfeited if you don’t arrive in the first 15 minutes of a reservation.
  • Although the study rooms are a more private space, they are not soundproof. Please keep the noise down so as not to disturb others.
  • Study rooms are only available during hours the library is open. Check library hours before making your reservation.
  • When filling out your reservation, use language appropriate for viewing in public spaces. The information you put in EVENT NAME will be viewable by the public.
  • Library staff reserve the right to resolve schedule problems by adjusting reservations or schedules.
