Reserve a Room
*UPDATE: Individual Study Rooms in the Alkek Library are now available for use by reservation only. Study rooms in the third floor Graduate Commons and first-floor YouStar Studios are now reservable through the EMS reservation system. Group Study Rooms, Collaboration Rooms and the Comm Lab have been temporarily closed and are not available for reservation or use at this time..
YouStar Studios and Graduate Commons study rooms and Individual Study Rooms can now be reserved using our EMS room reservation system. When making an online reservation, Firefox is the recommended browser as Sign In functions sometimes fail when using other search engines.
To keep library patrons safe, we have made the difficult decision to close group study rooms with the exception of those in our graduate commons until we believe that we can reopen them safely. We recommend that group work be done online using the university's Zoom and Teams licenses.
New features: We have new ways to make reservations for spaces in the Alkek Library. You can make a future reservation online using the EMS application linked from the button below or make an immediate one-hour reservation using tablets located outside reservable rooms equipped with this option. In addition, immediate reservations for the YouStar Studios can be made from the kiosks located on each floor of the building.
PLEASE NOTE: Room capacities are specified for each reservable room. Individuals who make the room reservation will be held responsible if occupancy levels exceed specified maximums. Therefore, it is important to cancel any reservation that you will not be able to use in person. Room capacities allow for appropriate social distancing. Noncompliance with the university’s health and safety measures will be handled through existing staff discipline, faculty discipline and student judicial processes
Masks are to be worn any time more than one person is occupying a room.
