Group Study

There are five group study rooms and one computer lab/classroom that are available for group or class use in Rudolph Matas Library. These rooms are available on a first-come first-served basis for groups of 3 or more. Smaller numbers of users may be asked to move to a different area. Two of the group study rooms are in the 24/7 side and available weekends and late evenings. We allow groups of 3 or more to reserve a group study area during Monday-Friday when notified 24 hours in advance. Please reserve during Monday-Friday, 8:00am-5:00pm. Sorry, reservations are not scheduled for weekends and when the library desk is closed.

Library seminars or curriculum-related events receive scheduling priority. Each group study room is equipped with a whiteboard, network connections, table and chairs.

Two of the group study rooms are located on the 2nd floor of the Library in the 24/7 area, Rm 2228 (6-8 people) or Rm.2230 (10-12 people). Three additional group study rooms are located on the Mezzanine: M201 (4-6 people) and M203 (4-6 people) and M205 (4-6 people). To reserve a room 24 hours in advance, use the online form or call the Matas Information Services Desk Monday-Friday from 8 am - 5 pm at (504) 988-2403.

The Mezzanine Computer Lab/Classroom (M207) is for hands-on computer usage and accommodates up to 17 people with individual computer access. Library Classes and Seminars take precedence over other classroom use.

• Rooms may be scheduled for up to three hours for groups at the Information Services Desk at least a 24 hours prior to the requested time. Monday reservations must be made on Friday.
