Study Rooms

Research Group

At Chabot Library, we have five partitioned areas available for group study.  Eventually, all five areas will have blackboards/whiteboards.  THREE of the partitioned areas require online sign-up.

As these new areas are not fully enclosed, we strongly require you to respect students around you.  Students seeking rehearsal or speech practice space should definitely seek another area on campus.

Pocket Projectors are available for checkout at the Audio Visual Center (upstairs in the mezzanine) if you wish to display something from your laptop, pad, or smartphone.

Due to high demand, all five partitioned study areas are available only for groups two or more for a maximum of two hours (four timeslots) per day and six hours (twelve timeslots) per week. ROTATING MEMBERS OF A GROUP BEYOND THESE LIMITS IS A VIOLATION OF OUR RULES.  IF YOU DO SO, YOU WILL NO LONGER BE ALLOWED TO USE OUR STUDY ROOMS.

On rare exceptions, librarians will sign up study groups for a longer time.  Study groups MUST contact Kim Morrison, Library Coordinator at for that ahead of time request.  Requests are still limited to one week in advance.

If at least two of you have NOT arrived in the study room by 15 minutes, the room becomes available to others.

Two no shows means you cannot sign up electronically and must talk to a librarian. 

You can cancel your reservation up to one hour before by clicking on the option to Cancel link you received in your Email or by contacting the Library at (510)723-7006.
