Study Room Policies and Guidelines

Policy language updated Spring 2022.

  • Study rooms may be reserved by WIT students, faculty, and staff only.
  • Each student may reserve study room space for up to two hours (consecutive or non-consecutive) per day.
  • Study rooms may be booked up to two weeks in advance.
  • For group reservations, each group member is allotted two hours of study room time. All participants must be invited to the booking as attendees, otherwise your booking is subject to cancellation.
  • Booking titles with inappropriate language, symbols, or characters are subject to cancellation by Library staff at any time.
  • If you are more than 15 minutes late to your reservation, your reservation is considered void and the study room will be up for grabs until the next reservation.
  • If a study room is not booked, anyone may use the room until another reservation starts. We highly recommend reserving the room to ensure study space. Students with confirmed reservations will be guaranteed the room.
  • Study rooms may not be reserved for semester-long recurring bookings, such as for a class meeting place. If you are faculty and need to find classroom space for your course, please contact the Registrar.

Library staff reserve the right to cancel any reservations they deem to be in violation of these policies and guidelines.

Please be considerate of others:
  • Keep audio volume low
  • Leave some time to clean up and pack your belongings
  • Be prepared to vacate the room before the start of the next reservation
  • Cancel your booking if your plans change, to free up the room for others

If you have study room needs that fall outside of these policies and guidelines, please visit the Circulation Desk or email circdesk@wit.edu and we will work with you to try to find a solution.

Before you begin, make sure the time zone in your Outlook web app is set to (UTC-5:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

By default, this button pulls up the list of Wentworth’s conference rooms. Click the Choose a New Room List button at the very bottom of that list and then choose Library Group Study Rooms. This will display only the rooms available at the time of your appointment. Choose the desired room. To complete your booking, click the Send button in the top left.

You should receive an automated email confirming your reservation.

NOTE: If there’s a problem or conflict with the reservation you will receive a notification, but other invited guests will still see the reservation on their calendars. In this case we recommend canceling the meeting on your own calendar, which will remove it from other attendees' calendars as well.
