Group Study Rooms

Group Study Rooms are available for groups of two or more currently enrolled ACC students studying for ACC courses. Study rooms are available at these ACC Libraries -- CYP, EGN, EVC, HYS, NRG, RGC, RRC, RVS, and SAC.

General Information

  • ACC Library Services staff monitors the use of Group Study rooms.
  • If a group is discovered in a study room and has not signed up at the Reference Desk, they will be asked to register at the Reference Desk if the room is available for them.
  • Groups without a reservation will be asked to vacate the room if a reservation for the room has been made by another group.

Reserving A Group Study Room

Be sure to read all of the section on RESERVING A GROUP STUDY ROOM before making a room reservation.

What your group may do:
  • Reserve a room up to a week in advance
  • Reserve a room for up to 2 hours.
  • Renew the room for another 2 hours if no students are waiting or if there is no existing reservation.
  • After the 4 hours have expired, the group may be allowed to remain, provided there is no demand or another room reservation is made. [Note: 4 hours is the maximum that can be reserved in a day.]
  • Room renewals may be made only 15 minutes or less before the current room reservation expires.

What your group may not do:
  • Make a reservation longer than 2 hours (no back to back reservations are permitted).
  • Leave belongings in the room unattended.

Please read our Eligibility & Appropriate Use page for specific information about eligibility and use.

  • Reservations are recommended.
    • If a group wishes to use a room and they have not made a reservation prior to arriving at the library and there is a room available, they must check in at the Reference Desk and sign in with the librarian.
    • Staff will write one student's name on the sign-in sheet after checking ACC ID. To maintain privacy, students will not have access to the list of names on the sheet.
  • Rooms must be reserved in person by an ACC student (who is part of the group) with a valid ACC photo ID at any ACC Library Reference Desk to request a reservation at any ACC Library.
    • Note: If room availability at the other campus could not be verified immediately, the student must check back at a later time before going to that campus to use the room.
  • Rooms cannot be reserved by telephone, e-mail, IM, Twitter or chat because current ACC student IDs cannot be verified with those methods.
  • ACC students with valid ACC IDs may reserve the study room up to one week in advance. No semester-long scheduling is available.
    • During busy times of the year, students may not be able to schedule rooms on multiple days.
  • Group Study rooms are available for up to two hours at one time. More time may be requested by the group after the two hours if the room has not been requested by another group. [Note: 4 hours is the maximum that can be reserved in a day.]
    • During busy times of the year, time extension may be limited to 30 minutes.
  • Group Study rooms will be held for 10 minutes past scheduled time before being reassigned to another group.
