In order to checkout a study room, the following guidelines must be observed:

  • No eating or drinking is allowed in the rooms with the exception of water.
  • These rooms are available for quiet study. A reasonable level of noise/activity must be maintained.
  • Furniture in the rooms is to be used only for its original intent and purpose: chairs for sitting, tables for writing, placing material. Sleeping or engaging in activities other than study constitutes grounds for removal.
  • Minimum and maximum occupancy of the rooms must be observed at all times.
  • Rooms must be vacated 15 minutes prior to closing.
  • When vacating the room, close and lock the door and check out using the QR code provided. 
  • Study rooms can be booked up to a week in advanced here (Rancho campus only). Please visit or contact Chino and Fontana for Study Room availability at those locations. 

By checking in to use a Study Room, you understand that you are responsible for the conduct of persons using the room while checked out under your name. Any violations will result in removal from the room and may also result in loss of checkout privileges for rooms and disciplinary action.


You are welcome to utilize books within our library. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide full privileges including, but not limited to, item checkouts, computer use, wifi, database use, and study room use.
