Study Spaces

At Thomas Jefferson there is a strong commitment to provide a variety of research and study spaces for students and faculty members. Study spaces are available on all four floors of Scott Memorial Library, Jefferson Alumni Hall, and elsewhere on campus.

In the Library, the fourth floor is considered the quiet floor, while the first floor allows for more conversation. There are individual carrels, desks and tables on the second through fourth floors.

There are ten small-group collaboration rooms on the second floor of Scott Library available to Jefferson students. Each room is fully equipped with a computer, a large flat screen monitor, and a writing surface. The six rooms on the west side are unlocked and available any time between 8am and 2am. The four rooms on the east side may be reserved:

In addition, six small rooms available on the third floor of Scott for individual use or pairs. These rooms are not reserved and are available on a first come, first served basis for up to 4 hours. Room keys must be checked out from the second floor Service Desk and may be checked out a second time if the room is not on hold by another student.

The Library also oversees group study areas in the Jefferson Alumni Hall, and provides guides to study space elsewhere on campus.
