Group study rooms


Book a group study room online

The Laurier Waterloo Library provides group study rooms for collaborative study and research. The rooms on the 4th-7th floors can be booked online up to one week in advance. Any Laurier student can book a room once a day for up to 2 hours. The rooms can accommodate between 3-8 students. Thanks to a gift from WLUSU's student life levy, rooms are equipped with wall mounted monitors and users may connect their own laptops.

No keys are required, simply show up at the room at the time of your booking. Note: Rooms not claimed within fifteen minutes of scheduled booking time will become available for other groups to use.
