Group Study Room Policy   Gill Library New Rochelle Campus 

Gill Library, New Rochelle Campus -
Group Study Room Policy

Six Group Study Rooms (three on the first floor and three on the second floor) in Gill Library provide space for small groups to use for serious academic purposes.  The
Group Study Room Policy is meant to ensure that these Rooms provide a clean and comfortable environment and are available on an equitable basis.  Groups of individuals affiliated with CNR have priority of use of the Group Study Rooms.
1. Each Group Study Room occupant agrees to comply with the Gill Group Study Room Policy.  Not complying may result in revocation of the privilege to use a Group Study Room.
2. Rooms may be reserved no more than two weeks in advance by completing an online
Group Study Room Reservation Form which requests the names of all of the individuals who intend to occupy the Room. 
3. Reservations are held no longer than 15 minutes beyond the time for which the Room is reserved if the Room is needed by others.
4. Groups (2 or more people) have priority over one individual requesting or occupying a Room.
5. A maximum of 4 to 8 people may use a Study Room depending upon which room is available.
6. Each Study Room occupant must leave a photo ID card with a valid expiration date at the Circulation Desk while using a Study Room.
7. Each ID card is returned to its owner (and no one else) after the Study Room is vacated, found to be in good order by a Library worker and locked.  Occupants should allow time for this procedure.
8. The Library is not responsible for belongings left unattended.
9. No food or drink is permitted in the Study Rooms or anywhere else in the Library, except in the Library Café.


10. A Study Room may be used for up to three hours by the same individual(s).  The individual(s) may request a renewal and, if granted, they may use the Room until needed by others.
11. Study Room occupants agree to vacate the Room 15 minutes prior to the posted closing time or when asked to vacate the Room by a Librarian or Library worker.
