Collaborative Study Rooms

Reserve a Group Study Room

NOTE: We are testing making study rooms available unlocked, meaning that you do not need to check out a key at the Service Desk. Instead, you may simply book online and bring your email confirmation, along with your Duquesne University identification card, to the room at the reserved time.

 

 

The Center has several study rooms available for group use. Each study room is equipped with:

  • a large table with ample seating
  • a 55" LED high definition monitor. Students can connect their laptop, iPad, iPhone, or any other device that has an HDMI connection.
  • Need a cable? Select PC and MAC cables are available for checkout at the Information Desk.

  

How to reserve a room:

  • Pick a room and a time in the chart
  • Enter your name and your duq.edu email address; confirm that you are a law student, faculty or staff member; and confirm your reservation is for a group
  • Click submit
  • Check that you’ve received a confirmation email (please keep this handy, along with your University I.D. card)

 

Terms and Conditions for Study Room Use:

  • Rooms can be reserved up to five days in advance.
  • Rooms are available to law students, staff, and faculty only.  Have your Duquesne University identification card with you. The Center's staff has the right to cancel any reservation made by a non-law affiliated individuals. (If law school faculty or staff need to reserve a room for longer than the allotted time frames, please contact Julie Tedjeske or Chuck Sprowls.)
  • The maximum amount of time that a group can reserve across all study rooms is four hours per day. If the Center's staff notices that one group is clearly monopolizing a room by having different group members sign up for time slots, we reserve the right to honor the first four hours of reservations and open up the remaining hours.
  • If a room is not reserved, it is available on a first come/first served basis. If a room is unoccupied but reserved, the group with the reservation has the right to ask others to leave if that group shows up within 15 minutes of the start time of the reservation. A group that is more than 15 minutes late will be deemed to have surrendered its reservation.
  • Some, but not all, study rooms lock from the inside. Please try to avoid locking yourself out!
  • Optionally, keys may be checked-out at the Circulation Desk for those with confirmed online group reservations. You must bring your student I.D. and a printed copy of your reservation confirmation with you to the Circulation Desk. (We cannot look up the reservation for you.) Checked-out keys must be returned at the end of your confirmed online reservation. In other words, checking out a key does not in any way extend the time frame for your reservation. If you lock items in a room and leave them there beyond your reserved time, we may remove those items if another group with a confirmed reservation seeks to use the room.
  • Keys which are not timely returned may be subject to a 50 cent per hour fine. (If you renew a room reservation beyond the original two-hour time frame and you have checked out a key, you must also separately renew that key.)
  • Be courteous and respect others' reservations. You should also cancel reservations, if appropriate, so as to allow everyone to use this valuable resource.
  • Finally, remember that the study rooms are not sound proof, so please maintain a reasonable level of conversation so as not to disturb others who are working.

*These rooms may also potentially be reserved for longer periods for special events. For more information, please contact Julie Tedjeske (412.396.5014) or Chuck Sprowls (412.396.1133).
