Group Study Room Reservation Policies and Procedures

TWO OR MORE CURRENT UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE STUDENTS

The University of Delaware Morris Library Group Study Rooms are intended for academic use by groups of two or more current University of Delaware students.  Faculty and staff members needing spaces should contact classroom scheduling or their department to find appropriate meeting spaces.

RESERVATIONS HAVE PRIORITY

Students using a room without a valid reservation must leave when approached by a group that has a valid reservation.

Use the online system at http://udel.libcal.com/booking/groupstudyReservations can be made up to seven days in advance.  Students must use a valid UD email address ending in udel.edu.

CONFIRMING EMAIL SENT IMMEDIATELY TO STUDENT RESERVING ROOM

Save the confirmation email as it will be used to settle disputes about who has reserved and has permission to use the room.  

ARRIVE ON TIME

There is only a ten-minute grace period, then the reservation is null and void. If a group is not present within ten minutes of the start of the reserved time, the remainder of that hour may be used by another group.  To schedule a room left unoccupied after the grace period, please request assistance at the Reference Desk or the Circulation and Reserve Desk.

If there are any belongings left in an unoccupied room, please contact the Circulation and Reserve Desk on the First Floor of the Morris Library or call  (302) 831-2455. The Lost and Found is located at the Circulation and Reserve Desk.  Call (302) 831-2455 or  send a message using AskCirc to inquire about lost items.


RESERVE A MAXIMUM OF TWO HOURS PER DAY UP TO SEVEN DAYS IN ADVANCE 

If a group needs to reserve space in multiple rooms, note that reservations are limited to a total of two hours for that day.  Please be considerate of other students and reserve no more time than is actually needed. The group study rooms are very popular so please cancel reservations if  space will not be needed. To cancel reservations, click the link provided in the room booking confirmation email.
