New Study Spaces: Reserve Through Room Calendar

As you, your study groups, and student organizations plan ahead for your academic year at IU McKinney, we’re pleased to announce that new study spaces are available and reservable through the Room Calendar.  Brand new this year are Meeting/Study Areas 355-2, 355-4, 355-5, and 355-6 all located on the 3rd floor of the law library with larger seating capacities, white boards, and unique capabilities.  For more information, please see the Room Calendar which can also be accessed from the top of any law school page under Tools.

The Room Calendar offers helpful features such as adding events directly to your calendar, and you can even have notifications about each event sent to you, as well as share with a friend via email.

For good practice, you may want to check out the Room Calendar each day for any reservations before setting up camp in a Study Room or Meeting/Study Area.  The spaces are not first-come, first-serve, however you can better plan your study route by using the Room Calendar to be mindful and informed of events happening here in the law school.  If no reservations are showing for your desired space, then you’ll likely be safe to use any available Study Room or Area as reservations must be made no later than 5 days in advance.

The 3rd floor of the law library has ongoing furniture arrangements to be made, so stay tuned for updates!  Happy studying!
