Group Study Rooms

PURPOSE
Library group study rooms are available for use by HCC/UH System students. The study rooms are for groups of at least two and no more than six students. The accommodations for the five group study rooms are as follows:
ROOM 112 (1st Floor) 2 - 4 STUDENTS
ROOM 113 (1st Floor) 2 - 6 STUDENTS
ROOM 205 (2nd Floor) 2 - 6 STUDENTS
ROOM 206 (2nd Floor) 2 - 6 STUDENTS

The primary purpose of these rooms is to provide a place for students to engage in collaborative and cooperative academic study in small groups. HCC faculty and staff may reserve a study room to conduct college business.

Library study rooms cannot be used for social gatherings, playing games, tutoring for profit, non-academic projects, and regularly scheduled classes.
DESCRIPTION
Each room has a table, 4 to 6 chairs, a chalkboard, and a wireless network connection available for your laptop computer.
