Yale University Library


Library Classrooms and Group Study Rooms


Rules for Use of Classroom and Group Study Rooms

  • Food is NOT permitted in classrooms or group study rooms. Non-alcoholic beverages may be taken into the Library class and study rooms only in approved spill-proof containers.
  • Reservations are required for the use of the 2 classrooms in the Bass Library and may be requested for times they are not scheduled for university classes. Reservations are available to Yale faculty, students and staff for course-related activities through the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Classroom Reservation System.
  • Entry to each room requires use of a current Yale University ID proxy card by the person for whom the room is reserved.  Doors should not be propped open.
  • Each room has been furnished for safe egress of its designated maximum capacity.  Please do not bring additional chairs or other furniture into a room. Return rooms to their original configuration before leaving.
  • Colored chalk and wet markers may not be used on writing surfaces.  Please use only the chalk, dry-eraser markers, erasers, and cleaning fluid that are provided in rooms.
  • Please leave lights ON when leaving the room.
  • The person who reserves a classroom is responsible for its use and care.  Rooms should be left in the same condition as found and cleared of any debris. 
    Any charges that are assessed for damages or excessive cleaning may be passed on to the individual who has reserved the room.
  • No computers are provided in these rooms, but you are welcome to bring your own.
  • Audio Visual equipment is available in each classroom and group study room. See the listing of what each room has through the reservation system.  Groups requiring additional AV services should contact Media Services well in advance of any session.  Please note that fees are assessed for the provision of audio visual services.
  • The Library rooms are not designed for conferences or large group meetings.  However, use of these rooms to supplement a campus event may be reserved when there is not heavy demand for them.  All undergraduate organizations must also comply with the Undergraduate Regulations.  Yale registered undergraduate organizations planning conferences or large meetings and requesting multiple rooms must have clearance through the Yale College Dean’s Office and the Library Office of Public Services before requesting use of any of the Library rooms for conferences.
