DCLI Group Study Room Policy
There are six study rooms currently 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). Beginning November 26, the rooms may also be reserved up to one day in advance, by filling out the study room sheet at the Circulation Desk or by calling 412-396-5017.
Please Maintain Quiet in the Center
DCLI strives to maintain a quiet place to study. The Center requests the cooperation of all students and faculty in adhering to our quiet study rule, especially during the upcoming Exams Period. This includes refraining from loud talking, cell phone use, or any other loud behavior. Please respect your fellow student's desire for quiet study space. Study rooms are available for groups that need to collaborate. Otherwise, please save any conversations for outside of the Center. This policy pertains to all areas of the Center, including all three floors of the library and the Service Center desk. We are confident, with everybody's cooperation, that we will successfully provide a quiet place to study.
