Student Study Space

EME Building

There are 18 student study rooms ranging from 6-10 capacity available to students for study use. All student booking requests require name, student number, start and end times, and purpose of the meeting.

To ensure fairness and optimize limited room resources, please follow these guidelines:

  • Bookings can only be made by the person who will actually be in attendance. Study rooms are restricted to 2 hours maximum per day. You may make a daily booking occurring (2 hours once a day in one room) every day but only two weeks at a time. Rooms will be open for booking, one month prior to the start of the term. For example on August 1st, the EME rooms would be available for bookings for the September term.
  • Access – Rooms are open the same hours as the building 6am-11pm Mon-Fri and 7am-10pm Sat/Sun. If you have booked the room and arrive to find the room occupied, you have the right to ask the group to leave. Please vacate the room promptly at the end of your scheduled time.
  • Cancellations – Bookings will be considered cancelled if the room is not occupied within 15 minutes of the booked start time.
  • Furniture – Respect the space, leave it clean, remove your personal belongings and garbage . Do not remove chairs from the rooms. You will be responsible for any damages to the space during your booking time.
  • Bookings that do not follow the guidelines may be in danger of being cancelled without notice.
