    There are ten study rooms available for group study purposes. These rooms are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Keys are signed out at the Circulation Desk only to current Duquesne law students with valid DU ID cards. Students may use these rooms, for group study only, in blocks of two hours (with one renewal). The rooms may also be reserved up to one day in advance, by filling out the study room sheet kept at the Circulation Desk or by calling 412.396.5017.
