Study Spaces in the UB Libraries

Need a place to study? In addition to the general study tables and carrels located in each campus library, there are also group study rooms, quiet study areas, and individual lockable carrels in some of the UB Libraries. Check out the list of Study Spaces in the UB Libraries, and you’ll find the perfect spot to write a paper, prepare for a presentation, or just study.

The University Libraries offer various types of study spaces for different study needs: silent, individual study areas; group study areas; open and locked carrels; and individual and collaborative study rooms.  It is important to respect the various study needs of others and observe proper protocol for each area.

A few friendly reminders:

  • Cell phone use should be outside of study areas
  • Safeguard your belongings from theft
  • Be considerate of others
