Study and Meeting Space

The Clemson Libraries offer study and meeting space for students, faculty, and staff in Cooper Library and Gunnin Architecture Library.

Cooper Library

Group study and meeting rooms are available on the 1st and 2nd floors of Cooper Library. Priority for use of these rooms is for groups of 2 or more people. Study and meeting rooms are not provided for, nor intended to take the place of classroom or departmental meeting space.

Availability

Rooms are open for groups to use on a first-come, first-served basis when not reserved with the following exceptions:

  • Room 103 can be reserved only by library employees and Cooper Library tenants Monday – Friday during the hours of 7:30am – 5:00pm.
  • Room 201A, the Sigma Alpha Zeta Presentation Practice Room, can be reserved at any time by students.

Restrictions

Only Clemson students, faculty, and staff with a valid Clemson email address and ID can reserve study and meeting rooms. Room reservations for all study rooms are accepted up to 2 weeks in advance and must be made at least 2 hours in advance. Reservations are for a maximum of 2 consecutive hours and are limited to 1 reservation per day. Reservation group names that include profanity or other offensive language will be canceled.

Confirmation of reservation will be sent via email and should be used as proof of valid reservation. You receive a link to confirm your reservation. You must click on the link within 30 minutes to confirm the reservation. Failure to click on the link provided will result in your reservation being denied.

Group study room users without reservations must vacate the room when requested by a group with proof of valid reservation. Reservations that are not made in consecutive time blocks will be canceled.

Personal Items

Personal materials and library books may NOT be left unattended in the group study rooms while users are in class or away for extended periods of time. Materials and personal items left unattended will be removed. Library books that are not checked out will be returned to the shelves.

Study Environment Policy

Color-coded study zones have been established for every floor. See posted maps on each floor for zone locations. Red = silent (no talking); yellow = quiet (whispered conversations); green = collaborative (talking quietly). Patrons are asked to be considerate of others and follow the guidelines for the zones. Staff and security will monitor noise levels and respond to problems appropriately. In severe cases, the Clemson University Police Department will be called to assist.

Gunnin Library

Located in Lee Hall, Gunnin’s room 2-112D is not currently eligible for online booking. You can reserve it anytime Gunnin is open by calling (864) 656-3933.
