In compliance with the University's Gates of Reopening, a limited number of classrooms can begin to serve as places to study and collaborate in Gates 2 and higher.

Beginning in Gate 2, groups of 10 or fewer students may gather in non-residential indoor spaces if they wear face coverings, maintain 6-feet of physical distance, and follow all guidelines of the current Gate.

University Libraries

The University libraries (Case-Geyer and Cooley) are maintaining modified hours during the pandemic to allow for enhanced cleaning and sanitization procedures. Physical distancing and face coverings are required at all times in library facilities.

Check hours

Reserving Study Rooms

Individual students will still be able to reserve library study rooms and other areas that don’t require scheduler approval. Please note that there are revised “physical distancing” capacities for every room, indicating how many people can use a room while maintaining six feet of separation between each person. Rooms may be reserved via EMS.

Go to EMS

Cleanliness and Sanitization

As shared-use spaces, responsibility for maintaining their cleanliness and safety is a shared responsibility. Cleaning supplies are provided within each space and will be regularly replenished by custodial staff. Students who use these spaces should sanitize before and after use to protect both themselves and those who follow.

Custodial staff will clean and disinfect these spaces outside of the buildings' regular hours.

    Rules for Study Spaces

    • Face coverings are required.
    • Maintain 6-feet of physical distance.
    • Work surfaces and high-touch surfaces (e.g. chairs, door knobs) must be cleaned prior to and after each session.
    • Follow guidelines for the newly reduced occupancy of the classroom.
    • No food is allowed in these classrooms, but water bottles and covered cups are welcome.

    Shared Materials

    To reduce the risk of virus transmission, study spaces will not be outfitted with shared materials such as white board markers, chalk, erasers, etc.

    Students who wish to utilize classroom boards should bring their own materials.
