Study Room FAQs
Like most things in life, the study rooms come with their own set of policies. Please abide by the posted rules and comply with any instructions given to you by library staff members.
- All study rooms are for use by UAA and APU students, staff, and faculty.
- Students will get priority booking over non-students.
- Each group or individual may use a study room once per day for a guaranteed time block of up to two hours.
- After two hours have passed, you or your group may be asked to leave the room if all other study rooms have been reserved and a new individual or group is waiting.
- Beverages with a lid and small food items ARE allowed in study rooms.
- We appreciate your leaving the room in the same neat condition you found it in.

About the Rooms
We have 16 rooms available for group study and 4 rooms for individual study on the first and second floors of the library.
- Group study rooms hold 2 - 10 people and come with a whiteboard, table, and chairs.
- Markers for the whiteboards can be borrowed at the Circulation Desk at no charge (please have a photo ID available).
- All rooms have power outlets and can support both wireless and Ethernet internet connectivity. Except for 105 A and B, study rooms do not have computers, projectors, or other AV equipment; however, you can borrow a laptop or iPad from the Circulation Desk.
- 105A and 105B are in the Media Room and have TVs, DVD players, and VCRs. We try to reserve these rooms for groups that need access to media.
- 204, 205, and 207i have special collections in them. We try to book these rooms last, to allow access to the collections.
