A guide to the library's policies.

Group Study Room Policies


  • The study rooms of the library are for use as a space for quiet study by individuals or small groups.  Such use shall at all times be consistent with the fundamental objectives of the library to provide a suitable environment for academic activities.

Check Out

  • Study rooms may be reserved. If a study room is not reserved it will be used on a first-come-first-served basis. 
  • All people in the group are considered one "check out." 
  • Renewals are at the discretion of the library staff.

Time Limits

  • Study room reservations will be canceled if you are more than 15 minutes late. 
  • The room is checked out for a four-hour period.
  • If you have checked out the room and you leave for more than 15 minutes, the room is no longer checked out to you, and the room will be open for checkout.
  • Items left unattended for more than 15 minutes will be removed by the library staff.
  • Patrons must vacate the room 15 minutes before closing.


  • At least one member of the group must be currently enrolled as an Ivy Tech student and must check out with their Student ID.


  • Patrons may be asked to leave if they disturb others or engage in destructive or inappropriate behavior. 
  • Users of the study rooms are responsible for leaving the rooms in a neat and orderly condition. Shut the door, throw out trash and let staff know the room is empty.          

Accountability / Non-Compliance

  • The library is not responsible for any of your personal items should you leave them in the room unattended (to go to the restroom for instance).

  • When a study room is checked out in your name, you will be accountable for all policy infringements.
