Study Rooms

Torreyson Library is a great place to prepare for upcoming class projects. We have 23 rooms on the first floor and 25 rooms on the second floor available for use by UCA students, faculty or staff. Most rooms have dry erase walls for brainstorming or just creating your own artwork, and we even provide the markers for you. The rooms vary from single user to groups of 8-10 people. Here are a few guidelines to help you use our Study Rooms.

  • All study rooms are first come, first served. No reservations may be made.
  • An individual cannot hold a group student room while waiting for the arrival of others in the group. If a larger group needs the space, you may be asked to vacate.

  • Rooms must remain unlocked at all times.
  • Windows in rooms must remain uncovered at all times.
  • The rooms are not soundproof, please keep the noise level down as not to disturb others.
