Guidelines for Library Facilities

Library Study Rooms Policy

The Study Room Policy strives to ensure access for Chandler-Gilbert Community College students to our Library study rooms. The study rooms are for the use of CGCC Students for the following: 

  • Groups to work on collaborative projects 
  • Students viewing missed video(s) for class
  • Individuals studying

Reserving a Study Room

  • Advanced reservation: Students can make a reservation up to one (1) week prior by contacting Circulation Services. Call (480) 857-5102 or stop at the desk during business hours.
  • Same-day reservation: Students can self-reserve the day of use by signing their name in the available time slots on the sign-up sheet posted outside the study room door.
  • Reservations are limited to a two - (2) hour period. If no one wants the room at the end of the two-hour period, the person(s) in the room may continue use of the room until someone else needs it.
  • Circulation Services staff will post the day's reservations on the sign-up sheet outside the study room door. Students must sign these sheets when they use the rooms. Sheets should not be removed.

Using a Study Room

  • The library is not responsible for anything left in the study rooms.
  • An individual using a study room will be asked to move to another area in the library if the room is needed for a study group.
  • Whiteboard markers and erasers are available at the Circulation Services desk. Please erase whiteboard and return markers and erasers to the Circulation Services desk.
  • Beverages in spill-proof or leak-proof containers are permitted. Food is not permitted. Please put all trash in the wastebasket before leaving the study room.
  • Be respectful of other library users and minimize noise. The study rooms are not sound-proof.
  • The study rooms are for academic purposes. If you are using the room for
    non-academic purposes, you may be asked to move so others may use the room.
  • Children cannot be unattended.*
