Library Study Room Policy

Library study rooms are available for currently enrolled IU Kokomo students to use for individual or quiet group study. Rooms are not available for course instruction, faculty office hours, or for meetings among staff, faculty, or student organizations.

All study rooms are available for use from the opening of the Library until ten (10) minutes before closing to allow staff time to perform closing procedures. Reservations are accepted Monday – Friday (see Room Scheduling).

Room Scheduling

  • Reservations may be made by currently enrolled students up to one week in advance, but no less than 24 hours in advance.
  • Room reservations must be made using your primary IU email address exactly as listed in the IU Directory. Reservations from other or non-IU email addresses will not be approved.
  • Access our booking system to request a reservation (https://iuk.libcal.com).
  • You will receive a confirmation email with room number, reservation date/time, and cancellation instructions.
  • Study room users without reservations must vacate the room when an individual or group with a reservation arrives. A daily schedule of study room reservations is available online (https://iuk.libcal. com) and will be posted outside each room.
  • No-shows: If the room is not claimed within 15 minutes of the reserved time, the reservation will be cancelled, and the study room will be available to others for the remainder of the time slot.

The Library is not responsible for unattended belongings. Materials left unattended in a study room for more than 10 minutes will be removed and taken to the campus lost and found.

Please report any problems with the rooms to the Departmental Secretary, KA 233.
