Spaces for Study & Collaboration

Reserve a Group Study Room iconThe UNLV University Libraries offer many inspiring places to study, discover, and collaborate. We have comfy lounge areas, study tables scattered throughout all libraries, cubicles for solo study, computer work stations, a café in Lied Library, and group study rooms and multimedia production studios for group collaboration and work.

Group Study Rooms

Group study rooms are to be used for educational and academic purposes only. Non-academic activities such as meetings of student groups or university departments OR any commercial activities are NOT permitted in library meeting rooms.

Selected group study rooms in Lied Library, Music Library, and Teacher Development & Resources Library are reservable by UNLV students, staff, and faculty in adherence to the group meeting space policy.

UNLV students may reserve group study rooms to study in groups or work in groups on class projects or research projects and for other academic or educational work related to their studies.

In addition, UNLV faculty and staff who are also CURRENTLY taking a course at UNLV are also eligible to reserve group study rooms for uses related to their studies. UNLV faculty and staff employees who reserve rooms must limit their use of group study room to course-related activities for a course in which they are CURRENTLY a student. UNLV faculty and staff employees may NOT reserve group student rooms for office hours, for business meetings, or for meetings with groups of students, or for other non-academic purposes.

  • Room reservations are available to UNLV students (and faculty and staff CURRENTLY taking a course) only and may only be used by groups of 3 or more.
  • Individuals or pairs of students in groups study rooms will be asked to vacate the room to allow groups of 3 or more priority access.
  • The number of individuals in a specific room must not exceed the posted maximum occupancy limit posted in that room.
  • An individual may make reservations directly by logging into the online system with an active ACE account. To make a reservation, go to https://rooms.library.unlv.edu/VirtualEms/
  • Library staff cannot make or modify a reservation or provide reservation details.
  • Priority is given to groups with reservations over groups using a room on a first-come, first-served basis. If you find a vacant room and do not have reservation, check the online reservation system to see if the room is available to meet your needs; if so, make a reservation. If the room has pending reservations, we recommend you find another available room.
  • Reservation options begins on the quarter hour (:00, :15, :30, :45) for periods ranging from 1 to 3 hours.
  • Rooms can be reserved up to two weeks in advance but users may have only one active reservation in the system at a time.
  • There is a 15-minute grace period for group arrival, before the space becomes available for other users.
  • Rooms cannot be held by individuals or pairs for later group arrival.
  • The individual reserving the room MUST be present at time of use AND will be held accountable for any policy violations. If someone uses your ACE account WITHOUT your consent, please notify campus OIT right away.

Some group study rooms are not reservable – these are open and available to groups of three or more on a first-come, first-served basis.

All other meeting spaces and classrooms in Lied Library are restricted for library staff and internal operational use only.
