Study Rooms

Reed Library offers a variety of options for study and research to support individual study and group collaboration. From open areas in the library with comfortable seating and awesome views to reservable presentation rooms with large display screens, we seek to provide an environment reflecting the needs of students and others in their learning and research activities.
