Study Space Policy

Our library locations offer a variety of study space and meeting rooms. Groups looking for a space to study together may use the open study spaces or group study rooms. Individuals may also use the open study spaces at any time.

Beyond the Libraries, view the JMU Study Spaces map to learn about study spaces all over campus!

JMU faculty who would like to bring their class to the library for library instruction are encouraged to contact a Liaison Librarian.
