LAKERS TOGETHER: Grand Valley is preparing for successful learning experiences when classes resume on Aug. 31. Learn more about the plan for fall in this handbook.
Some University Libraries buildings have reopened. Here's what you need to know to have a safe and successful visit. We continue to provide support online for GVSU students, faculty, and staff through our online services.
The University Libraries has reservable study rooms and first-come, first served rooms available in both the Mary Idema Pew Library and Steelcase Library for socially-distanced groups of 1-3 people.
Our study rooms can be reserved up to 10 days in advance online or at time of need using the touch screen outside each room. You can make up to three (3) hour-long reservations each day. Empty and available rooms can be used, but be sure to reserve the room to prevent another group from reserving it.
At least three people from your group need to arrive within 15 minutes of your reservation, or the room will be available to other groups.
