Reservation Information

The Library provides study rooms for use by Fitchburg State students, faculty, and staff. We recommend that reservations be made in advance although walk-ins are allowed if the room is available. The room is available any day that the library is open as follows:

  • starting at 15 minutes after the library opens
  • ending at 15 minutes prior to the library closing

Reservations are scheduled through online through the Circulation Desk. Please include your name, OneCard ID number, the date and times you are requesting, and the number of people in your group. If you need to cancel your reservation, 24-hour notice is appreciated.


Study Room Guidelines

Patrons not in compliance with these rules may be asked to leave and/or be barred from future study room use.

  • The room is for group study and may not be reserved for individual use.

  • Reservations are available on a first-come, first served basis.

  • Reservations must be made using your OneCard with a library account in good standing.

  • The room may be occupied for a maximum of one 2-hour period per day per group.

  • Only one booking per day per group is allowed. (A 2-hour renewal may be granted at the Circulation Desk if the room is available.)

  • The room may be used as a media viewing/listening room, provided it is being used by a group.

  • Please check in with the Circulation Desk within 15 minutes after the start time for which the room is reserved. After that time, the reservation is void and the room may be checked out to a different group.

  • The person who reserves the study room is responsible for the condition of the room and should return furniture to the original arrangement. Repair costs to fix any damage to the room will be charged to the person who reserved the room.

  • The room is not sound proof; users should be sensitive to the need for quiet in order not to disturb others.
