Room Reservations Policy

The KJS Library has limited space available for use when the library is open. Every effort is made to provide comfortable space that enhances and contributes to the best possible learning opportunities for our students. The library has a variety of rooms available for use, some of which can be reserved for group study.

 General Guidelines for all Rooms

  • Equipment problems should be reported to circulation desk staff.
  • Respect for those studying and conducting research in the library should be observed at all times. To minimize noise disruption, the meeting room doors should be closed if media is being used, and the volume kept at a level that will not disturb others outside the room.
  • The Library is not responsible for any items left unattended. All individuals are urged to keep laptops, purses, book bags, and other valuables in their direct supervision at all times.
  • Please leave the room in as good or better condition than when you arrived.

Library Conference Rooms

The library has three conference rooms available by reservation: the Marine Room (362), the Philip Hart Conference Room (334), and the Skype Conference Room (150). These rooms are not to be used as substitute seminar or classrooms.

  • Room keys are held at the Circulation Desk and are checked out using a valid LSSU ID card. The room will not be checked out if you have outstanding library fines of $5.00 or more (check your library account here).
  • Student reservations may only be reserved up to 2 weeks in advance.
  • Reservations can be made for a maximum of 4 hours per day.  If your party consists of less than three people, you may be asked to use a different room at the library’s discretion (to accommodate the needs of larger groups).
  • Groups may not reserve more than 3 days of rooms in a week and are limited to one reservation per day. 
  • Reservations will be held for 30 minutes after start time. If a reserved room is vacant for more than 30 minutes, the room reservation will be cancelled and will be opened up for use on a first come, first serve basis.
  • Priority is given to university use.
  • Conference rooms cannot be reserved by community members during the week before or week of final exams.
