Classrooms as Study Spaces

Many health sciences classrooms, when not scheduled for classes or events, are available for shared study for all students as capacity allows. While seating will be first-come-first-serve, room occupants cannot restrict access to other users during open study hours. If you are looking for a more private space for uninterrupted space, you can reserve study rooms through University Libraries at

  • Small classrooms without technology remain unlocked 24/7 and are open to all students when not scheduled. 
  • HSEC and PWB Classrooms with technology are unlocked 6:30 a.m., locked at 7:00 p.m., and are available to health sciences students who receive UCard access via their school/college until midnight.
  • Other classrooms and lecture halls with technology are unlocked at 6:30 a.m. and locked at 10:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
  • Unless scheduled for courses or events, these rooms are locked on weekends.
