Study alone or meet with a small group.

COVID-19 Alert

Limited Service

Study rooms are AVAILABLE in 2-hour time slots, which may be extended if no one is waiting. Because study rooms must be cleaned between use, reservations are less flexible than normal.

We highly recommend that you call ahead to reserve a room. Please call 860-828-7126.

We do have a few rules to give everyone a fair chance to use a study room.

Sign In at the Reference Desk

  • When you arrive, please visit the Reference Desk to sign in.
  • If you haven’t signed in, and someone else requests the room, we will assume you’ve been in the room for the maximum amount of time.

2-Hour Time Limit

  • You may use a room for up to 2 hours per day.
  • After 2 hours, you may be asked to leave the room if another patron is waiting.
  • You may stay in a room past your 2 hours if no one else is waiting.


  • You may reserve a room up to a week in advance; otherwise, rooms are first-come/first-served.
  • Your 2 hours begin at your reserved time, not when you arrive. If you need to change your reservation time, please call in advance.
  • Your reservation is for a time slot, not a specific room. We will try to accommodate your preference, but will not ask another patron to vacate your requested room if another room is unoccupied.
  • No-show reservations will be canceled after 15 minutes.


  • Please do not leave a mess in the study room.
  • Please keep noise to a minimum; rooms are not soundproof.
  • Please bring any study room issues or conflicts to a staff member.
