Student Study Room Reservations

The Holmes Student Center has set aside multiple rooms for self-service reservations during business hours to provide students with private and readily accessible study space.

This process has been streamlined to maximize availability and convenience. As a result- there will be no audiovisual support available and strict adherence to appointment times will be enforced.

All study rooms will be cleaned by our Building Services team twice a day: before we open and from noon to 1 p.m. (reservations will not be available during this time). Sanitizing wipes will be provided for the user as well.
