Room Policies

The Brown Library Group Study Rooms (Rooms 152 and 156) are located on the main floor of the library. 

These rooms are available for reservation by small groups (15 or fewer people, depending on size of the room).  The rooms are available during normal business hours for the Brown Library.   (See Library Hours)  Reservations can be made for a maximum of three hours per day per user.  The rooms must be vacated 15 minutes prior to the Library closing.  If a room is vacant and unscheduled, it may be used on a walk-in basis but must be surrendered to anyone who has made a reservation.

Rooms are for the use of UVa students, faculty, staff and their guests only.  A minimum of two persons is required to book Rooms 147, 152 and G046; a minimum of four persons is required to book Rooms 155 and 156.  You may reserve rooms up to 2 weeks in advance for single group sessions.  We cannot accept full semester or repeating bookings.  Study groups are strictly prohibited from monopolizing the group study rooms by creating adjacent reservations under the computing ID of a different group member.  The Brown Library reserves the right to cancel any reservation created in this manner.
