Reserve a Group Study Room


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

  • a large table with ample seating
  • a high definition monitor. Students can connect their laptop, iPad, or iPhone.
  • Need a cable? Select 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 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)


Rules for Study Room Use:

  • Rooms can be reserved up to five days in advance.
  • Rooms are available to law students, staff, and faculty only.
  • Rooms can be reserved in a single four-hour block; each user is limited to a single four-hour booking per day across all rooms.
  • 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, but you must still check out the key.
  • A group that is more than 15 minutes late will be deemed to have surrendered its reservation.
  • Once you make your reservation, you must also check out a key at the Circulation Desk. Checked-out keys must be returned at the end of your confirmed online reservation. Having the key does not in any way extend the length of your reservation.
  • Keys which are not timely returned may be subject to a 50 cent per hour fine. 

*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).
