Group Study Rooms / Room Reservations

Group Study Rooms

There are 19 group study rooms in the Libraries. There are three group study rooms in the University Library: LI-B 26, LI-B 47 and LI-B 92. The Science Library houses 12 on the 1st and 2nd floors. Each of these rooms has a PC, speakers, a table and chairs, and a whiteboard. Additionally, the Science Library has 4 group study rooms in the basement that are available after 5:00pm and on weekends; these 4 rooms are not equipped with a PC.

Group study room keys may be checked out by patrons with borrowing privileges at the University at Albany. Keys to the group study rooms may be requested at the Circulation Desk. Rooms are for group (two or more persons) use only. The loan period for the room key is three hours. Room key loans may not be renewed. Staff may use judgement and make exceptions to the non-renewal policy if there are multiple room keys available when a key is returned.

The fine for an overdue key is $15.00/hour or part of the hour. Staff may require a group to relinquish a room key at the end of the loan period if others are awaiting for the room.
