Due to COVID-19, group study rooms will be closed for the fall 2020 semester.
We have 14 study rooms for groups of two or more. All of our study rooms feature tables, chairs and whiteboards. Ask for markers for the whiteboards at the Service Desk. Some group study rooms have large monitors or projectors that you can used with your laptop. Cables and adapters are available in the rooms or for check out.
Current Western Michigan University students can reserve group study rooms. You must present your Bronco Card at the main Service Desk to check out a group study room. Rooms are assigned for up to two hours. Additional time can be given if there are no other scheduled reservations.
