Group Study Rooms

The Haas Family Arts Library provides three group study rooms.
  • All study rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Graduate students have priority access to Study Room 108. Undergraduates may be asked to forgo use of this room during times of high demand.
  • Walk-in use for a two-hour period is available to any Yale affiliate. Please ask about availability and check out keys at the Library Service Desk.
  • All three Group Study Rooms (108, B35, B36) seat six to eight people.
  • Each room contains a wall-mounted flat screen monitor and dry erase board. Personal laptops can connect to the flat screens. Remote controls are available for checkout at the Library Service Desk. If you want to connect a Mac laptop to the flat screens, you will need to bring a Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter with you.
  • Group Study Rooms may be reserved by faculty, staff, or teaching fellows for department-related functions such as consultations, tutoring, practice sessions for presentations, or other group meetings; they are not intended to be used for social functions or regularly-scheduled classes or seminars. Reservations are made at the discretion of library management.
