  • The Group Study Room is not available for regularly scheduled classes.
  • Groups may reserve the Group Study Room at the East Asian Library service desk or by contacting the library at ea@wumail.wustl.edu. Please make reservations at least one hour in advance.
  • Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis, and may be scheduled up to three hours at a time. When the room is empty, it is available for walk-in use. However, reservations always take precedence over walk-ins. Walk-in groups are encouraged to sign-in at the East Asian Library service desk.
  • Individuals may not reserve the Group Study Room but may use the unreserved room if not needed by a group.

Kranzberg Art & Architecture Library

Rome Seminar Room: Library users may reserve the Rome Seminar Room at the service desk or by contacting the library. Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis, and may be scheduled up to three hours at a time. The seminar room cannot be reserved for a regularly scheduled class. Arriving more than 15 minutes late forfeits the reservation. Scheduling priority is given to library instruction sessions.

Graduate Study Room: The Graduate Study Room is available on a request basis to graduate students in the Department of Art History and the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts. Students in the Department of Art History are eligible for locker and shelf space in the room.

Group Study Room Policies and Information

Rooms are for group study.

Please limit your group’s reservation requests to no more than 4 hours per day. This will help ensure that many groups have an opportunity to use the study rooms.

The library reserves the right to deny reservation requests that do not follow the above policies.

Reservations are strongly encouraged. When rooms are empty, they are available for walk-in use, whether or not there is a reservation at the time. However, reservations always take precedence over walk-ins.

Canceling reservations: If you have made a reservation and will not be using it, please cancel the reservation so other groups may use the room.
