Study Spaces

Study rooms and open study space

The library provides several types of spaces to meet your needs.

  • Study rooms, reservable: 42 individual and 11 group study rooms that you may reserve via the UNMC reservations website.
  • Open study: spaces with flexible seating options in different areas
  • Quiet study: spaces with mostly fixed seating in designated quieter areas
  • Study rooms, non-reservable: rooms that are open if no other groups are using the room

Students: Use a Study Room for your Interview

Individual study rooms in McGoogan Library are available for you to use for interviews that will last longer than the four-hour reservation time limit. If you require a longer reservation, please email the library. In your request, please provide:

  • Dates
  • Start and end times
  • Room or Floor Preference
    • Please see a list of all available rooms in the room reservation system list "UNMC Reserve Library Student Study Space (Omaha)" or in the maps below.

We want you to feel as comfortable as possible during your interview and will try to reserve your preferred space. When you arrive, stop by the AskUs desk to pick up a “do not disturb” sign. We appreciate as much advanced notice as possible and cannot guarantee an available room for late requests.

If you do not arrange to use a room for more than four hours, you may be asked to vacate a room to honor another student’s reservation.

Study Room Use Policy

Study rooms will have a four-hour maximum time limit on reservations within a 24 hour period. Reservations can be made within two weeks of the desired date.

At the conclusion of each use of the space:
  • ensure technology has been powered off
  • use the cleaning supplies to wipe tables where food or beverage items have been placed
  • return the room furnishings to their original state
  • remove all items brought into the room

If damage occurs and is not reported, or the room is not returned to its original state, the person reserving the room may be held liable and future room use may be restricted.

Personal items should not be left unattended.
