Who Can Use Them?

To ensure the widest possible access by the CSI community, study rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis for students, staff, and faculty.

When not reserved, these rooms may be used for individual or group study. Individuals without a reservation must yield the study rooms to groups with a reservation. Groups needing to use a large study room (114 or 115) which is being occupied by an individual should ask for help at the Front Desk and not disturb the individual using the room.

If an individual or a group is more than 10 minutes late for their reserved time, they must yield their reservation to any other group needing a room.

Public Services staff will reserve study rooms for one-time use or multiple days up to two weeks for study sessions for CSI classes up to three hours a day. Reservations must be made 1 (one) day in advance. Individuals may reserve the smaller study rooms only. Study rooms will not be reserved for commercial or non-CSI related purposes.

Reserving a Room

To make a reservation, you can:

  • Stop by the Circulation Desk any time during regular Library hours.
  • Call 208-732-6500 and provide the following information: your name, your phone number, the name of your group or course, the name of your instructor, the date(s) and time(s) you would like, and the number of people in your group.

Conditions of Use

Study rooms are to remain unlocked at all times.

The Library is not responsible for personal items left in study rooms.

The Synexis air purifier machines must remain on and plugged in.

Library materials left in study rooms will be cleared on a daily basis and re-shelved.

Group Study Rooms are not meant to be occupied by the same individual or group of students for more than three hours. Small appliances, bedding, air mattresses, and additional lamps or lights are not permitted. If occupied rooms need to be cleaned, you may be asked to vacate the room to allow janitorial staff to enter. Stockpiled food is also strongly discouraged because it attracts rodents. Students found to be “camping” in a room may be asked to leave if violations of these rules occur.

While the rooms are designed to support collaborative work and normal conversation is allowed, noise levels must not rise to the point of being disruptive to other patrons. Library staff may ask you to lower your voices if the noise level is too high. Failure to comply may result in a removal from the Library.

Sleeping in group study rooms is not permitted. If students are found sleeping on the floor or on the furniture in the rooms, they may be asked to vacate the rooms.
