Study rooms, meditation room open for individual use

Posted on November 16th, 2020

Booth has reopened its fourth-floor study rooms and meditation room for reservations. The rooms had been closed for safety reasons during the pandemic.

“We’ve received several requests from students to reopen the study rooms,” said Zach Newell, dean of Library Services. “Students with online classes need private spaces to work, and after discussing protocols with local health officials, we have agreed on a way to open the study rooms safely.”

Typically Booth study rooms are for group work. However, they are now for individual use only. Rooms are available by reservation only and can be reserved for up to two hours. These same regulations apply to the meditation room, as well.

Masks are required, just as they are throughout the library. Sanitizers are provided for individuals to clean surfaces. There will be a required break between reservations to allow for air filtration.

Only current EIU students with a valid Panther Card may reserve a room. Reservations can be made up to two weeks in advance.
