Temple University Health Sciences Libraries -- Study Room Policy

The Temple University Health Sciences Libraries are pleased to offer a large number of both large and small group study rooms.

We ask that those using the group study rooms abide by the following guidelines:

  • A Temple University Health Sciences ID card is required to check out a room key.
  • Small group study rooms are available on a first come, first served basis. Keys will be issued at the circulation desk. These may be used by individuals or groups. [Edited 2/5/15-Room reservations can be made 24 hours ahead of time for rooms with Mac Minis] 
  • Four hours is the maximum amount of time a room can be signed out. Renewals are allowed during low demand times.
  • Occupancy in each group study room is limited to the amount of chairs already in the room, no moving/ removing furniture from the rooms.
  • Rooms should be left clean and in order for the next patrons. This includes cleaning the white boards, picking up trash.
  • Conversations should be held at a reasonable level.
  • Learn more about technology in study rooms.
  • During busy exam periods, the larger study rooms (seating 6 or more) will be restricted for the use of groups containing 4 individuals or more. Individuals (groups of one) who wish to use a study room will be assigned to a smaller room (seating for 4). 

  • The Library is not responsible for personal property left in rooms.
