Open study spaces

First-come, first served study spaces include the 24-hour study room on the first floor, three viewing and listening rooms (163-165), two phone rooms (203 & 302), a family-use room (208), and quiet study areas with a variety of seating on the third floor. No reservation is required to use these spaces; priority is given to students with course-related needs.

24-hour study room

The 24-hour study room is equipped with 16 networked computers, a printer, worktables with seating, and restrooms. The 24-hour space is available for anyone to use during most library hours, and is accessible by MAVcard when the library is closed. 

The after-hours entrance is on the southeast side of the building, between the 24-hr book drop and the firepit. No reservation is necessary to use this popular study space. Unauthenticated (non-CMU) users may not use this space after hours.

Only CMU faculty, staff, and students with active MAVcards are authorized to use this space. If you are an authorized user but are unable to gain access with your MAVcard after library hours, please call the Facilities Helpline at 970.254.4357. Be prepared to show your MAVcard to verify your identity.
