Group Study Rooms at Shields Library

Our room reservation system is in beta and will launch soon. For now, group study rooms at Shields Library remain available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Reservable Rooms

There are eight reservable group study rooms in Shields Library. Rooms may be reserved by currently registered UC Davis students.

  • Group study rooms are for two or more students.
  • Available rooms can be reserved on demand, and up to seven days in advance.
  • Student groups may reserve a room once a day, for a maximum of two hours, and up to four hours a week.
  • Group study rooms may not be used by instructors, or for office hours or standing meetings.
  • For rooms that are not reserved, drop-in use is on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to groups.

Large groups interested in using the entire space in room 92 or 162 should reserve both tables (A & B). A different member of your group will need to reserve each one.

You may borrow study equipment, such as mobile whiteboards, through the Circulation Desk.

How to Reserve

  • Please review our Guidelines for Room Use before making a group study room reservation.
  • Reserve a group study room online using your UC Davis (Kerberos) login or in person using the QR code displayed outside the room and/or on room tables.
  • Once your reservation is complete, you will receive a confirmation notification at your ucdavis.edu email address. You can choose to have the reservation added to your calendar. Please note: reservations are considered tentative until you receive an email confirmation; unconfirmed reservations may not be honored.
  • Keep your reservation confirmation (e.g., email print out, phone screenshot) with you while using the group study room during your reserved time.
