Group Study Rooms

  • The Library provides 15 group study rooms. Rooms must be booked or reserved in advance to assure your occupancy.  There are two ways to do this.  Instructions for reserving the rooms are below.

    For more information about the Group Study Rooms, please see the General Information and Policies page.

    How to use the room control panels to book a group study room:

    • Go to the room you want to use.  If the lights on the panel are green, press "Reserve Now" to book the room for the next 120 minutes (or until the start of the next reservation, whichever comes first). Your reservation will appear on the screen.
    • If the lights on the panel are red, you can see a list of currently available rooms in the library by pressing "Available Rooms." Walk to the available room you want, and book the room by pressing "Reserve Now."
    • Room control panels do not allow advance reservations. To make an advance reservation, use Outlook Web Access.

    How to use Outlook Web Access to book a group study room:

    Group study rooms can be booked up to two weeks in advance for a maximum 2-hour duration. Meetings booked in conflict with other bookings will be declined.

    In order to book the group study rooms in advance via computer, you must use your Seattle U Outlook Web Access (OWA) email account.  

    At present, bookings are ONLY successful when using Outlook Web Access on Internet Explorer on a PC.  (Bookings do NOT work with Outlook Web Access Light, so do NOT click the "Use Outlook Web Access Light" option when logging in.)

    People using Mac computers can use Vlab to enter a PC environment.  Questions about vlab? View this page from OIT or contact 296-5571.
