In accordance with the executive order of Governor Whitmer, all University Libraries buildings are closed until further notice. We continue to provide support online for GVSU students, faculty, and staff through our online services.
Group Study Rooms
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 groups of 3-12 people.
How Room Reservations Work
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.
