Reserve a Study or Collaboration Room

Group study room

NEW! Smart Group Study Rooms Available Now

The library has six new VETI-funded Smart Group Study Rooms: PL 310 & 321, PL-5005A, B, C, & L. Each smart room has a 65-inch flat screen monitor and AirServer unit to transmit from mobile devices to the monitor. Multiple users can mirror (or cast) their laptops, cell phones, or other mobile devices simultaneously. We recommend no more than four users cast at the same time. A remote control for the monitor can be borrowed from the Library Multimedia Center desk, located in room PL-5005, or the Check-Out Desk on first floor.


Nineteen group study rooms on 3rd-5th floors, six individual study carrels on 4th floor, and two "Multimedia Collaboration Rooms" on 5th floor may be reserved in advance.

Follow these steps:

  1. Select a room type from the list below.
  2. Select a day from the calendar and up to four half-hour slots (for a total of 2 hours), consecutive or not.
  3. Login with your MyCoyote username and password.
  4. Submit your booking information.
  5. Your reservation is now complete! Keep your final confirmation email as proof and bring it with you.

For all room locations and details, check the Map of Group Study Rooms (PDF)

If a group has not occupied the room within 10 minutes after their start time, the reservation is forfeited, and other groups may use the room. A single individual cannot "hold" a study room for a group arriving later.

Reservations may be made up to one week in advance.

One additional room, PL-503, is a "Multi-Group Study Room" with several tables to accommodate more than one group. The Multi-Group Study Room cannot be reserved in advance, and you must be willing to share this room as long as a table is unoccupied.

Semester-Long Study Carrel Use

The Pfau Library has four locked, individual study carrels available for use on a semester basis by CSUSB faculty members or graduate students needing research space. If you would like to reserve a study carrel, submit a Study Carrel Request or apply at the Library Administration Office, PL-2006. Requests are subject to review by the dean of the library.
