Group Study Rooms

The Haas Family Arts Library provides three group study rooms.
  • These rooms are for the use of patrons affiliated with Yale University.
  • Group Study Rooms may be reserved for such activities 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. 
  • 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.
  • All study rooms are first come, first served. For rules regarding reservations see below.
Reserving Study Rooms
  • Walk-in use is available by inquiring at the Library Service Desk. If a room is not in use, a library staff member will grant access to the space and inform the patron of any upcoming reservations.
  • Our Group Study Rooms are in high demand and reservations are made at the discretion of Library Management. Faculty, staff, and HSAR and ARCH PhD students who request reservations for department-related functions will receive priority. To reserve any of the Group Study Rooms please contact Haas Family Arts Library Access Services.
