In the library with a study room

In Study Room-0942By Dawn Wilson

If you’re looking for a private place to study, look no further than the 16 rooms in the McGoogan Library of Medicine. Located on the 7th floor, all of the rooms have good lighting, a table and chairs, white boards, and electrical outlets.

Here’s a few things to keep in mind when using the study rooms:

  • Rooms check out for 4 hours at a time with 2 renewals.
  • You must have your UNMC ID card to check out and to renew your rooms.
  • If you don’t renew or return your key on time, overdue fines accrue at a rate of $1/hour.
  • Wi-Fi is available in all of the rooms (and so the internet ports are no longer connected).
  • Every room is a different temperature.
  • The rooms are different sizes, to accommodate anywhere between one person and six people in a study group.
  • The rooms are not soundproof, so although closing the door cuts down on noise, please be considerate when studying in groups.
  • Markers, erasers, and white boards are available in every room–and some of the rooms have boards that take up two walls for extra notation space!
  • Most of the rooms contain portraits of alumni or photographs donated by alumni.
  • The doors lock automatically, so make sure you take your key with you!

Many students have memorized their favorite rooms and ask for them by number. If you don’t have a favorite room, check out the map below and this chart of room details.
