Study Room Sign Out Policy and Procedure

Students can sign in to the Study Rooms in the library by following this set of procedures. 

1. You must sign up in person.  Email requests will not be honored.  How early can you sign in for each period of the day? This document details earliest sign in times.  

2. Reservations can be made in person one period in advance if at least one group member is available to come to the library and sign out the room. 

3. Each student must write his own name on the sign out sheet.  NEVER cross out names when leaving or when deciding not to keep the reservation.  Put parentheses around your name instead. 

4. Upon leaving the room, nothing should be on the floor, chairs must be pushed in and the lights must be turned off.
