Rotch Library

Library locations and study spaces remain closed until further notice. Students with MIT Covid Pass can use touchdown spaces around campus instead.

Students enjoy studying in the bright and airy reading room, or tucking away in a secluded nook on one of the upper floors.

Individual study

  • Large tables in the main reading room, 2nd floor map area, as well as study nooks on upper floors.
  • Quiet carrels in the stacks and more secluded study spots on either end of upper floors and on 1st floor.
  • Comfy seating in reading room and near elevator.

Group study

  • Due to the open architecture of Rotch, the entire space is intended for quiet study.
  • Group study spaces can be found at Barker (10-500) and our other locations.

24/7 study

At this time, Rotch does not have a 24/7 study space. See 24/7 study spaces to find a space.
