GROUP STUDY ROOMS

The University Library maintains a number of group study rooms for student use, including the Collaboration Lab (Co-Lab). Group study rooms are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the library and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. These rooms can be checked out by groups of 3 to 8 people whenever the library is open. Checkout periods are two hours at a time, although this period may be extended by an additional two hours if there are no other students waiting to use it.

Please note that we are only able to check out group study rooms when all students in the group have their CSUDH photo IDs. We regret that we will be unable to admit students who do not have an ID with them at the time of the initial check-out.
