Gill Library Group Study Room Policy
Circulation Desk: (914) 654-5340
Group Study Rooms in Gill Library provide space for small groups of students to use for academic purposes. The Group Study Room Policy is meant to ensure that a clean and comfortable study environment is available on an equitable basis.
Each Group Study Room occupant agrees to comply with
The College of New Rochelle’s Student Handbook and the Gill Library Group Study Room Policy. Not complying can result in revocation of the privilege to use a Group Study Room.
A minimum of 2 people is required for booking a Group Study Room. If Gill Library staff permits 1 person to occupy a study room, the person is to vacate the room if it is needed by a group. Room 114 is an exception to this rule and can be booked by a single person. All Study Rooms must be booked in advance by scheduling a time block on the Group Study Room Reservation page -

Reservations must be confirmed within 15 minutes of booking by responding to an automated email message.
Groups should cancel a reservation they do not wish to keep. If a group wishes to cancel a portion of their reservation, they should contact the Circulation Desk.
A Group Study Room may be booked in 1-hour blocks (not necessarily consecutive) for

Occupants must check in at the Circulation Desk before entering a Group Study Room. A group may remain in a Group Study Room until it is booked by another group.
