Study Rooms

The Library and Information Access has both open study rooms that can be used on a first-come, first-use basis, and rooms that can be reserved for 3 or more students. Study room use is available to SDSU students, faculty and staff only. Reservations for special study rooms require a current RedID for use. Individuals or 3rd party entities not affiliated with the university will be asked to vacate these areas.

The 24/7 Study Area, located on the 2nd floor of the Library Addition, is a computer lab with group study rooms and a help desk.  Access to this area is restricted to current SDSU students/faculty/staff when the rest of the library is closed (for instance between midnight and 7 am during the week). Security guards will check for SDSU IDs during that time.
