Room Reservations

Library instruction has priority over other reservations in FO 202, FO 293, and FO 297 during the months of September/October, and February/March. When library instruction is not scheduled in FO 202, FO 293 or FO 297, reservations will be made on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservation requests must be made at least two weeks (ten business days) in advance. Reservations are not confirmed until a confirmation e-mail is sent by the University Libraries Administration to the requester. Barring unusual circumstances confirmations should be sent within two business days.
