Library FAQs

May I drink coffee and eat snacks in the library?

Light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages in covered containers are allowed in the library. If you spill, please notify library staff immediately so that it can be properly cleaned.

How do I reserve a study room?

Sign up for a study room outside the door of the room you wish to use. Study rooms are available for two hour time blocks for groups of two or more law students.

Where are the quiet areas for studying?

The lower level and third floor carrels are good for finding a quiet space to study as the seating on those floors is not designed for groups. The study rooms on those floors offer a quiet space for groups of two or more.

Can I get into the library after hours?

Your law school identification card can be used to gain access to the library after hours when the law building is open.
