Use of Group Study Rooms
Study rooms are available throughout the library, except for the 6th floor. Groups of 3 or more will be given preference over a single individual. At the request from a group or 3 or more, a single individual will be asked, at any time, to vacate a room for the group to use.
Study rooms may not be saved or reserved, their use is on a first come basis. One individual cannot be left in a room to save it while other group members leave the Library. Individuals cannot leave their belonging in a study room unattended. If this occurs the UTEP campus police or staff from the Circulation Department may remove the belongings. The removed belongings will be taken to the Circulation Department and held there until the owners claim their property. If after a reasonable length of time the items are not claimed, they will be turned over to the Campus Police for safekeeping.
If there are complaints about a group getting too noisy, the Circulation Staff or Library Security will approach the group and asked them to please keep the noise down. If they do not comply they will be asked to leave the Library.
Any refusal to comply with any of these policies my result in the Campus Police being asked to intervene and a report may be sent to the Dean of Students for disciplinary action.
The Library enforces all of its circulation policies in a fair and equitable manner. If there is any question or problem, supervisors are available for assistance.
