Reserve a Space
Group study rooms
The library has reserveable study rooms that each seat anywhere from 2 to 12 people. All rooms contain whiteboards, some have a window. These rooms are located on the 2nd Floor of Library North , 3rd Floor of Library North and 4th Floor of Palmer Wing . Study rooms may be reserved by Cal State LA and LACHSA students, faculty, and staff for two hours per day up to 7 days in advance.
Empty and unreserved rooms may be used, but make sure to reserve the room to prevent another group from reserving it. At least half of the capacity of your room needs to arrive within 15 minutes of your reservation or the room will be available to other groups.

Communal Spaces for Faculty and Staff
Reserve one of our communal spaces—including the Community Room (B-131) and the Innovation Hub (A-119)—for your events, meetings, and workshops. Click below for details on seating capacity and calendar of availability.
- Library Innovation Hub (LIB A-119)
The University Library Innovation Hub houses a state of the art 84-inch Microsoft Surface Hub perfect for collaborative lectures, discussions, and presentations. Faculty and staff may reserve the experimental learning environment to hold events, workshops, and meetings, and faculty are welcome to use the space for one-time class lectures. This room is best for education-based events that are more interactive in nature. The space has glass walls that do not reach the ceiling and is visually accessible to surrounding patrons, therefore ambient noise may be of concern to those inside and adjacent to the room. Food and drink is not permitted in this area. The maximum capacity in this room is 39 seated. View pictures of the Innovation Hub space.
- Library Community Room (LIB B-131)
The University Library Community Room can be reserved by faculty and staff providing education-based events, workshops, and meetings that are open to the Cal State LA community. The Community Room features a PC-based workstation ideal for presenting, as well as furniture that is easily adaptable to meet the needs of your event. Adjacent to the room is a 1000-square-foot patio available for use during your event, but please note use of this space does not increase the maximum capacity of the space. The maximum capacity in this room is 45 seated or 70 total. View pictures of the Community Room space.
