Not dating, not friends, just taking the same course.

Many courses at the university encourage collaborative projects and or group study. Finding a good place to meet up after class can be tricky. Your apartment may be too far away or filled with too many roommates. Hallways in classroom buildings are filled with students going to and from classes. The Cougareat has too many tempting distractions as does the Richards building. But the library, with its central location and its rules about being quiet has what you need– quiet group study rooms.

The library works hard to provide students with rooms where they can gather in small groups to work on scholarly projects.

Every floor of the building from 1 up to 5 has small rooms with tables, chairs, and white boards ready for students to use.

You can reserve rooms ahead of time by visiting lib.byu.edu and clicking on the Reserve a Group Study Room icon.

Log in and then simply choose the floor you want to study on and the room you prefer.

There are a few rules you need to follow if you use a room. First, these are group study rooms not private study rooms. If you are just you, and there is nothing wrong with that, then please use a study table or a study carrel. Let’s all leave the group rooms open for groups. Second, the rooms are for study. That means you can’t order pizza to a study room. Security will stop the delivery people. You can’t host birthday parties in study rooms. Yes, we understand that is a group use, but it is not a study use. And, we don’t know why anyone would think this is appropriate, you can’t run a business in a group study room. No interviews or sales pitches allowed.

The Projector

If you really want to dazzle your fellow study groupies with a corporate approach, then you can check out out a laptop in the Media Center on level 4 and a projector from the Info Commons on level 1. Learn more at http://www.youtube.com/user/TheHBLL#p/u/0/4hk1QFEbqyo
