Study Rooms

Study rooms in the Law Library are exclusively for the UCI Law community. Our study rooms are for academic purposes only, and they all have whiteboards, tables, and task seating.

Law students can reserve a study room online at spaces.lib.uci.edu/booking/lawlibrary.

Pilot Project 2018-19

  • This year we are testing policies that work the same for all study rooms.
  • We hope members of the UCI Law community share these rooms in a spirit of cooperation.
  • If you have questions about using or reserving study rooms, come to the front desk. We're here to help.

How do I reserve a study room?

Online. Choose your day, time, and room at spaces.lib.uci.edu/booking/lawlibrary

Who can reserve and use Law Library study rooms?

Only members of the UCI Law community are eligible to reserve and use Law Library study rooms.  

Are there any limits on reservations?

Yes. Reservations can be for up to 3 hours per day. You can make a reservation up to 2 weeks in advance.

If I see an empty room, can I walk in and use it?

Yes. Any room that is unoccupied can be used until someone with a reservation arrives. If your reservation for the day ends, you can also stay (or use another unoccupied study room) until someone with a reservation arrives.

Check for upcoming reservations at spaces.lib.uci.edu/booking/lawlibrary.

What do I do if someone is in my reserved study room when I arrive?

Let them know. After booking a study room, you'll get a confirmation email. Bring a copy (print or digital) of this confirmation email to your study room, as proof of your reservation.

What do I do if I decide not to use my reservation?

Cancel your reservation through the link in your email confirmation. When you cancel a reservation, it ensures that the hours don't count toward your daily limit. It's also a courtesy to other students.

Are the study rooms soundproof?

No.  Be courteous to nearby study room users. Students who need to talk to employers and clients should find a different space to have private conversations. Students working in a clinic can reserve space for clinic-related phone calls and meetings by contacting Debi Gloria, Law Clinic Administrator.

Who can I contact with questions?

The Law Library's Access Services Manager.
