Group study rooms can now be reserved for up to four hours at a time! Rooms are available for currently enrolled UCF students. General study rooms are not locked, but if you do not reserve the room, you will be asked to leave if another group makes a reservation. More information about group study rooms in the UCF Libraries can be found on the Circulation Services page.
