Features

All study rooms have electrical outlets and Wi-Fi. All four rooms have chalkboards, chairs and tables. The rooms do not include any audio-visual equipment.

Policies

Eligibility

All currently registered University of Toronto students, staff and faculty are eligible to use these rooms for course-related projects or group study. The rooms cannot be booked for meetings, interviews, and other activities not directly related to coursework. A valid course code must be entered in order to book Room PR202.

Rooms are available for groups of five to twelve. However, if fewer than five students occupy a study room, library staff may ask them move to another study area in the library.

Students may book Room PR202 for one session at a time, with a limit of one booking per week, and a maximum of 2 hours per session. This is to ensure fair access to the study room for all students.

In addition, the library does not accept bookings that occur on a regular basis (for instance, sessions that are booked for the same time and day every week), except by permission from the Office of the Chief Librarian.

Code of Conduct

Students using the rooms are expected to abide by the University of Toronto Library Conduct Regulations. Eating and drinking are not permitted, with the exception of beverages in spill-proof containers with lids. Consumption of any other food or drink items can result in the group being asked to leave the room. Photographing, filming or video recording on library property without prior written approval of the Chief Librarian, and of individuals being filmed, recorded or photographed, is not permitted.

The bookable group study room on the second floor is designated as a quiet study space and is not sound-proof. Since high noise levels will disturb other library users, only quiet conversations are permitted.

Bookings will be forfeit if students leave the room unoccupied for an extended period of time.

Disclaimer

The rooms are not lockable, so please do not leave your belongings unattended at any time. Victoria University Library is not responsible for loss or damage of items left unattended.

Booking the Group Study Room

Only room PR202 (Second Floor, North Side) can be reserved in advance by calling the circulation desk at 416-585-4470. Bookings can be made whenever the library is open.

Anyone who does not follow the room booking policies or the Conduct Regulations will have his or her booking privileges suspended. By making a booking, you agree to abide by the policies outlined on this page.
