Group study rooms

The library has group study rooms that each seat anywhere from 1 to 5 people and may be reserved by Cal State LA students, faculty, and staff for two hours per day up to 7 days in advance. Some rooms contain HD monitors you can plug your device into or a computer with an HD monitor, others contain whiteboards. These rooms are located on various levels of Library North and South.

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.


Reservable spaces for graduate students

Cal State LA graduate students are encouraged to use the space and resources available to them in the Graduate Resource Center (GRC) for meetings, presentations, study groups, and other academic or professional needs. Reservations for GRC rooms should be made at least 24 hours in advance. Same-day and drop-in use of GRC rooms may be possible on a limited basis, and is not guaranteed.

To reserve a room, contact the Office of Graduate Studies by phone (323–343–3820) or email ([email protected]). Include your name, CIN, department, and how many people wish to use the room. Learn more about reservable spaces at the GRC.


Communal Spaces for Faculty and Staff

Cal State LA has canceled all public events until further notice. This decision was made in consultation with state and local communicable disease experts. As such, event and class spaces in the University Library are not available for reservations. As event and classroom spaces become available, we will update this space. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
