Policy: Student Study Rooms

All current UMD students can reserve a meeting room in Kirby Student Center during staffed building hours for individual or small group study purposes. We expect study room users to behave in a manner consistent with the UMD Student Conduct Code, the University of Minnesota Board of Regents Student Code of Conduct (PDF) and prevailing community standards.

Reservation Process

  • A study room may be booked on the day needed for up to 3 hours per day per student via Mazevo. Instructions on how to use Mazevo are here. If you have any issues, email [email protected] or stop at the Kirby Welcome Desk. Name the event “Study Room” and select “Student Study Room” as the organization. UCard is required to check out a key.
  • Reservations approved during the week between 8am - 4pm will receive a confirmation email. Reservations made in the evenings and on the weekend can proceed as requested by checking in at the Kirby Welcome Desk.
  • Reservations are for the current day. Future reservations cannot be made in advance. If students need to schedule a study space beyond the current day, they can book a study room in the Kathryn A. Martin Library.
  • Student study rooms include The Studio, Garage, or St. Louis River Room. The Studio or Garage should be utilized first. Capacity limits must be followed.
  • Room key can be picked up at the Kirby Welcome Desk and returned to the Welcome Desk by the end of the reservation time.
  • If the room key is not picked up during the first 15 minutes of the reservation, the reservation will be canceled.

Study Room Rules

  • Student must be in the room for the duration of reservation versus coming and going throughout the reservation.
  • Lights must remain on during the reservation.
  • Room must be left clean; remove garbage and wipe down tables if eating while in the meeting space.
  • When a key is lost or not returned, Kirby Student Center has the discretion to charge key replacement costs to the individual who booked the room.
  • Please do not leave the room key in the lock during your reservation.
  • The following activities are not allowed in the study rooms: sleeping, painting, holding office hours or regularly scheduled meetings, conducting recruitment sessions, hanging out with friends, soliciting, or engaging in activities that are disruptive to others.
  • It is a privilege to use Kirby meeting rooms for study purposes. Behaviors that do not comply with these guidelines or the Student Code of Conduct will result in the privilege being revoked.
