Study Spaces during COVID-19

Tables, chairs, and carrels are available for individual study throughout the Rodino Center. Please only sit in designated places, 6 feet from all other visitors, and do not move the furniture. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Should we need to limit capacity, the individual seat reservation system will be active.

Study Room Policy during COVID-19

Social distancing guidelines will not allow for more than one person in a study room at a time.

The Rodino Center will continue to make study rooms available to individuals using the existing Study Room Reservation software. Reservations will be limited to morning and afternoon reservation periods begin and end at a specified time for all rooms. Time will be blocked off between use to allow for cleaning of all rooms. Students will still be able to reserve study rooms 7 days in advance, but will be limited in the number of times they can reserve a room each week to help ensure equity and access to as many students as possible. Cleaning supplies will be available in each room for students to use in addition to the regular cleaning procedures. This policy will be reevaluated and adjusted as needed.
