Reserving Study Rooms in the Trible Library

The Paul and Rosemary Trible Library has 3 study rooms available for student, faculty, and staff use. These rooms may be reserved up to 24 hours in advance by calling (757-594-7133) or asking at the Circulation Desk.

Making Reservations:

  • Only CNU students, faculty, or staff may reserve rooms.
  • A student must present student ID and sign in at the Circulation Desk before the room is occupied.
  • If a room is not reserved, walk-ins may occupy on a first come first served basis. (Walk-ins must clear the room for the next reservation).
  • Reservations should be made 24 hours in advance.
  • Reservations are limited to 2 hours.
  • If a room is needed for longer than a 2 hour period, a separate reservation must be requested.
  • Requests for a specific room will be honored based on room availability at the time of the request.
  • A reservation may be forfeited if more than 15 minutes late.
  • Groups have priority during peak study periods. If an individual is occupying a room, he or she may be asked to vacate it to accommodate a group.
  • Occupants may be requested to vacate rooms to enable maintenance work to be carried out, or for administrative reasons.
  • The library is not responsible for any loss or damage to personal property left in rooms.

Before occupying the room:

  • Go to the Circulation Desk.
  • Sign in.
  • A “Reserved” sign will be issued.
  • Hang this sign using the suction cups on the window in the room.

At the end of your session, return the sign to the Circulation Desk and sign out.
