Study Spaces and Rooms

Every floor of the Goddard Library has study spaces.  The second and third floor are collaborative work areas, while the fourth and fifth floors are for silent study.  

There are a number of rooms that can be booked in advance, and can be used for private study or group work.  The following video will help you navigate this process.

Computers and Printing
