Group Study Rooms Use and Regulations

Group and Individual Study Rooms are available to currently enrolled students, staff and faculty of North Carolina A&T for legitimate academic purposes that support the instruction, research and study needs of the University community.

Using the rooms for unauthorized activities is prohibited and may result in the immediate loss of room privileges.


Individual and group study rooms may be requested for two-hour blocks on a first-come, first-served basis by visiting Circulation Desk on the first floor of the library. You may request a room when your group is ready to use it; advance reservations are not accepted.
