USM Libraries

Group Study Rooms

Group Study Rooms are once again available on a "First Come, First Serve Basis" for Individual and Group Study 



There are a number of group study rooms at USM Libraries. Each room is a privately enclosed space, allowing for groups to work together without disturbing other library patrons. Library patrons can use any of these rooms to study in groups or to work collaboratively on projects.


Group Study rooms will be reservable by current USM Students, Faculty and Staff using LibCal
