What else should I know about using a study room?

Please review the following study room guidelines prior to reserving a room:

Study Room Guidelines

The primary purpose of the Study Rooms is to provide KCC students, faculty, and staff with a place for: quiet study and discussion; classroom or research-related activities; tutoring; or college business activities.  Study rooms are not intended for use as general-purpose classrooms.  Requests for room reservations from college-affiliated groups will be honored if study rooms are not already booked by students, faculty, and staff.

The Study Rooms are intended for groups of 2-8 people.  Individuals may use the rooms based on availability and may be asked to leave when groups have reserved a study room.

Reservations may be made up to four weeks in advance either by telephone or in person and may be reserved by a group for up to a maximum of three hours in one-half hour increments.

Study rooms that have not been reserved will be available for immediate use on a first-come, first-served basis.

Room reservations will be held for 15 minutes only - reservations will be cancelled for "no-shows".

Groups should not leave their rooms unattended during their reserved period.  The Library is not responsible for lost or stolen items left in the study rooms.

Library staff has the right to refuse use of a study room if inappropriate activities are reported or observed.

Windows must remain uncovered/unobstructed, doors are to remain accessible at all times, and lights must be on when study rooms are in use.

Rooms are not sound-proof; conversations and discussions should be held to acceptable levels.

All trash must be disposed of properly before leaving the study room.

The user is responsible for the condition of the room.  Immediately upon entering a room, the user(s) must inspect the room and report any previous damage, graffiti, etc. to the circulation desk staff.

Library materials used in study rooms should be returned to reshelving areas after use, unless the items have been checked out.

Failure to vacate a study room when requested by library staff may result in loss of the privilege to use study rooms.

All rooms must be vacated 15 minutes before the library closes.
