Make a Reservation

The following guidelines apply to group study rooms:

  • Only GW students affiliated with the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Milken Institute School of Public Health, and School of Nursing may use or reserve these rooms.
  • Students may sign up for a room on an occasional basis, up to seven days in advance. (Rooms not scheduled in advance are available only on a first-come, first served basis.)
  • Groups may reserve rooms for a maximum of 4 hours at a time. (Members of the same group may not sign up for consecutive time slots!)
  • Leaving personal belongings behind does not constitute use of study space, and it places those items at risk for loss or misplacement.
  • Groups must be considerate of others by:
    • Using courtesy when asking others to vacate the room you've reserved
    • Limiting noise, food and drink
    • Cleaning up prior to leaving
  • Questions should be addressed to the Circulation Desk.
Himmelfarb Library reserves the right to modify the schedule at any time.
