Group Study Room Policy

Rooms check out in 30 minute increments up to 120 minutes.

Individuals may reserve a room up to 3 times a week.

Rooms may be reserved up to 14 days in advance.

Use of study rooms is restricted to Hampden-Sydney students, faculty and staff.

Reservations are the responsibility of the student. Library staff are happy to answer questions about the reservation system or library policies, but staff will not make reservations, edit, or delete them for students.

The study rooms are intended for group study. Individuals may be asked to vacate rooms if groups need space to study together.

Group study rooms will be left unlocked. If a room is empty, students may use it on a first-come, first-served basis, but to ensure room availability, students should make a reservation.

Students with reservations should arrive within 15 minutes of their reserved time. After 15 minutes, other students may enter the room and use it until the next student with a reservation arrives.

Students should be prepared to show confirmation of reservation if necessary. Displaying the reservation on a laptop or mobile device will be sufficient.

Individuals using group study rooms are responsible for clearing the rooms of any trash, papers, and books.

Personal items left in study rooms after a reservation has ended may be removed and taken to the second floor circulation desk. Hampden-Sydney College is not responsible for personal items lost or stolen in group study rooms.
