Group Study Rooms Policy & Procedures
About Group Study Rooms
Group Study Rooms are for the exclusive use of current (registered for a course) College of Southern Maryland students for course related purposes only.
Study rooms are intended for groups of at least two or more. Space for singular study is available in the library.
CSM arranged Tutoring takes precedence over any reservation.
Group Study Rooms must be reserved before use. Advance or walk-in reservations are acceptable and can be made at the Student Success Center Front Office at LR 120, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Group Study Rooms may not be used for social gathering, clubs, organizations, staff, or departmental business meetings or for instructor and faculty office hours.
Group Study Rooms are always kept locked. A CSM Library or Student Success Center staff member can assist students with reservations in opening a room.
Study rooms are available for College of Southern Maryland students on a first come, first served basis; however, group users without reservations must leave when requested by a group with proof of a valid reservation, i.e., confirmation of the reservation by the Library or Student Success Center.
Policies For Student Use
The College of Southern Maryland is not responsible for personal possessions abandoned in rooms.
Leaving unattended items in an unscheduled room does not constitute exclusive use and others may use rooms even if unattended items are left behind.
Furniture (chairs, tables, shelving, boards, etc.), markers, erasers, and cleaning materials should not be removed from the rooms.
No food, uncovered drinks, drugs, or alcohol of any kind may be used in the rooms.
There should be no gratuitous noise, unruly conduct, musical instruments or loud music played in the rooms.
Violation of any policy will result in students being ejected from the study room and excluded from further access for the remainder of the semester.
Report any issues, scheduling disputes or abuse to the Library Circulation Desk or Student Success Center at LR 120.
If after 20 minutes a group does not show up, CSM staff can cancel the reservation and the room may be given to another group.
Bookings may be made up to 2 weeks in advance by phone at (301)934-7657, email at email@example.com, or the Student Success Center at LR 120. The Library Circulation Desk can handle day of reservations.
Each student can make two, one-hour reservations per day per room.
If plans change, a student should cancel his/her reservation.
Reservations have priority. If a study room is in use without prior arrangements by a group or singular occupant, occupants must leave when asked by a group with a valid reservation. Study rooms are available (subject to the policies above) on a first come, first served basis.
Anyone who is using the room without a reservation should be required to complete a reservation or be asked to leave. No one is allowed to use the rooms without a reservation.
