Group Study Room Guidelines

Group Study Rooms are located in all three Montgomery College Library locations. These rooms enable students to work or study as a group without disturbing others in the library. These private rooms each come equipped with a conference table and chairs, whiteboard, and large monitor for displaying device screens.


  • Montgomery College student use
  • Part-time faculty who want to utilize rooms to consult privately with students
  • Student use of the rooms takes priority over others
  • Allowed group size is determined by the campus where the room is located


Group Study Rooms may be reserved online in advance or are available to walk-ins. When reserving: 

  • You must click the link in your confirmation email within two hours of submitting a request or your reservation will be canceled.
  • Reservations may be forfeited if the room is not occupied within 15 minutes of the reserved time.
  • Reservations may be made for a maximum of two hours per day per group.
