Book a group study room

OVERVIEW
The 
UHMC Library provides three group study rooms to currently enrolled UH students. Group study rooms are equipped with large monitors, blue-ray DVD players, and whiteboards.  The group study rooms are designed to serve as a place for students to engage in collaborative work in small groups, watch videos, and hold meetings.

POLICY

  • Our group study rooms are intended for current UHMC student academic use only (including student campus clubs and campus student-led organizations). Faculty, administration, and staff needing spaces should contact their department about finding appropriate spaces to meet their needs.

  • Group study rooms are for groups of two or more students. If there is only one person in the room for 15 minutes or more, you may be asked to relocate.

  • You may not enter the room before your scheduled time, even if the room is vacant.

  • The student who made the reservation must present their UH ID in person at the library circulation desk to check out the room key, and must remain in the study room throughout the reservation.

  • You will forfeit your reservation if you are more than 15 minutes late, or your group leaves the room unoccupied for 15 minutes or more.

  • Rooms may be booked up to two weeks in advance. On any calendar day, you may reserve a maximum of three hours per group, per day. Groups may reserve time in multiple rooms, but each group is limited to a total of three hours across all its reservations for that day. If you attempt to exceed these limits, your reservations may be canceled and your time slots will be made available to other groups.

  • The library reserves the right to deny use of the study rooms to anyone, student, or group.

  • Report all spills to library staff. Remove all food waste, bottles, cups, etc. Do not leave them in the trash can in the room. Failure to leave the room clean may result in you and your group being barred from using any library study rooms.

  • The group rooms are very popular; please cancel your reservation if you will not be using the space. To cancel your reservation, call the library circulation desk (984-3715) during our regular business hours, or click the cancelation link in the booking confirmation email.
