Reserve a group study room

Before you reserve: Review guidelines

We want to make these rooms available to as many MIT students as possible. If your request violates any of these guidelines, it will be cancelled.

  • Group study rooms are for the use of current MIT students, faculty, and staff.
  • Groups have priority over individual users.
  • Rooms may be reserved for a maximum of 3 hours at a time.
  • Rooms may be reserved no more than 30 days in advance.
  • Rooms allow 2 future reservations.
  • Consecutive, concurrent, or recurring reservations are not permitted.
  • Rooms are only available during library hours.
  • Reservations cannot be placed over the phone or by e-mail.
  • Tap your ID card at the door within 15 minutes of your reservation start time. Failure to do so will automatically make the room available for others to reserve.
