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.

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

Open Study Space

JMU Libraries offers space for small groups to meet throughout Carrier and Rose, including large work tables and lounge areas with couches and chairs. Please respect “Quiet Zone” signs where posted.

Group Study Rooms

First-come, first-served group study rooms are available in both Carrier and Rose. JMU faculty, students, and staff may reserve selected group study rooms in Carrier and Rose libraries. Find current availability and reserve your room at Reserve a Group Study Room.
