Group Study Rooms

Six rooms are available on the 2nd floor of the LRC for group study.

The rooms are equipped with whiteboards. Markers and erasers may be checked out at the Research Help desk.

How To Reserve

To reserve a study room, come to the Research Help desk on the 2nd floor and find the clipboard. Clearly indicate when you will be occupying the room. You can also call the Research Help desk (916-558-2461) and ask a librarian to write you in.

Same-day reservations can be difficult to get. Please try to sign up in advance. On Thursday mornings, we put out the signup sheet for the next week.


  1. Reservations can be made for up to two (2) hours per day per group. A group means two (2) or more current SCC students engaged in academic work related to SCC classes. No tutoring, clubs, office hours or other meetings.
  2. Groups arriving more than ten (10) minutes past their reserved time can be “bumped”; the room becomes available to other groups. In order to occupy the room,  more than one person from the group must have arrived.
  3. Study rooms are subject to the same food and drink policy as the rest of the library; currently that means no food. Drinks with hard covers are allowed.
  4. The rooms are not soundproof. Users need to keep their noise level within sensible boundaries.
