Study Space FAQ

Study Spaces

Silent study zones (Upper Library, Kamens Center) are spaces where conversation - even whispering - is not allowed.

Quiet study zones (Lower Library, Soltes Room) are spaces where whispered conversation is allowed, but volume should be kept low.

Collaborative zones (Rooms 2501 and 3202, Study Rooms A and B in the Lower Library) are spaces where conversation is expected. However, we do ask that you use your "inside voices."

For all exams and exam study periods, ALL spaces will become silent study spaces, with the exception of room 2501, which will remain collaborative.

You may have quick bites and sips, but please do NOT have full meals in study spaces. The Community Commons is the best place for this.

Reserving a Spot or Room

The only study spaces that can be reserved in advance are spots in the Kamens Center (Silent Study zone) or group study rooms for 3-6 people in the Lower Library (Collaborative Study zone). Every other space is first come, first served.

No, lecture hall seat reservations are no longer required. Lecture hall seats are now first come, first served.

Our custodians and security personnel work hard to keep the spaces clean and safe for all of us.  Please respect their time, and leave when your reservation ends and no later.

Please cancel a forthcoming reservation if you know you won't be able to make it.  The confirmation email you received includes a link to use if you need to cancel.  If you cannot find it, or it's too close to your reservation start time, please email us at library@neco.edu to let us know, and we will cancel it on your behalf.
