Library Policies: Group Study Rooms

Group Study Rooms


There are a limited number of group study rooms available in the Abbotsford and Chilliwack libraries for student groups to study together quietly. Individuals occupying tables will be asked to relocate elsewhere in the library. 


  • Rooms may be booked by current UFV students only. Rooms are not available for booking by non-UFV students or groups. Reservations by university employees or students for instructional, tutorial, examination, or meeting use, etc. will not be accommodated.
  • Groups are limited to one booking per day. Rooms are booked in 30 minute blocks, up to a maximum of 2 hours at a time. Consecutive reservations by groups will not be accommodated.
  • Bookings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Bookings are required in order to use a room and are booked online.
  • Study room reservations can start on the hour or on the half hour.
  • Students may reserve a group study room up to 14 days in advance.


  • If you do not intend to use a room, please cancel your booking. Only the student who made the study room reservation can cancel it prior to the reservation start time.
  • Once the reservation start time has passed, only library staff can cancel a reservation. Please ask for assistance at the Circulation Desk.
  • If a group does not show up for its booking within 10 minutes of the start time, the room may be assigned to another group. Please ask for assistance at the Circulation Desk.

 Conduct and Responsibility:

  • Due to the high demand, Abbotsford group study rooms have been split to accommodate two groups. Please do not move the dividers. Please respect the other occupants of the room by keeping noise levels reasonable. See the library's Noise Policy and Conduct Policy.
  • Eating in the study rooms is not permitted. Covered beverage containers are permitted. Please see Food and Drink Policy.
  • Students should leave the room in good order, including erasing the white boards (markers and erasers are available for checkout from the Circulation Desk). Personal items left behind will be sent to lost and found. Library materials will be cleared and reshelved on a daily basis.
