Studio Use Guidelines

  • Food and drinks are prohibited in the Library Studios. Only water in a spill-proof container is permitted.  If you need a snack or coffee, take a break and enjoy your food and drink in the Douglass Room study lounge area right outside the studios.
  • Do not unplug or move any of the equipment installed at the desks in each studio. If you need to plug in your own laptop, mic, instrument, or other audio source, all necessary jacks and ports are accessible from the front, so you do not need to access the rear side of the desk.
  • Please report any misuse, accidental damage, or technical issues to and
  • Please change or cancel reservations with as much advance notice as possible to make the space available to others.
  • Please be on time: If you have not come to begin your session in the studio 10 minutes past the time of your reservation, the studio reverts to “first come, first served” and your reservation will be forfeited.
  • Studio use is limited to three (3) hours per day. Users may reserve both studios (365B and 365C) simultaneously for up to three hours.
  • Faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, and staff are welcome to use the studios on a drop-in basis, as long as there are no other events/meetings scheduled. If another user has booked the studio, the reservation takes priority. You must respectfully pack up and allow the person with reservation to come in and work.
  • Outside the two studios are five audio work stations and a lounge area. Faculty, graduate, undergraduate students, and staff are welcome to use these areas at any time the library is open.
  • Leave the studios better than you found them.  Clean up any trash, make sure all equipment is intact and all furniture is where it should be.  (If you borrowed chairs from the Douglass study lounge area, you must put them back before you leave.)  These are shared spaces, and all users are responsible for taking care of them.
