Use Guidelines: All group study rooms are intended for use by students and faculty who need to meet with a group to study or work on projects. These rooms are not to be used for office hours or instructional support. Reservations can be made up to 30 days prior to use using the online EMS room reservation system prior. These rooms are not soundproof, so noise levels must be kept to a minimum. Groups who become loud and boisterous risk being asked to forfeit their reservation and leave the library.

This room is a great place to practice delivering your presentation. Students experiencing communication apprehension or "stage fright" can make an appointment with a trained presentation coach through the Communications Studies department. Those appointments are made by the Comm Studies staff and are not available through the library's reservation system. Reservations for room 304 can be made for up to two-hour sessions through the library's reservation system for use as a general collaboration room when not blocked for coaching sessions.
