Gone are the days of persuading your classmates to meet in a busy coffee shop or your apartment. Concordia has 34 group study rooms at the R. Howard Webster Library, Grey Nuns Reading Room and Georges P. Vanier Library
 

Book it with a tap and swish

The group study rooms on the third and fifth floors of the Webster Library now have tablets mounted outside their main doors. With a tap and swish you can view availability, book a room, check-in (a must!) and end your reservation. This new service was made possible by feedback that library users provided in a May 2016 pilot test.

Tip: Be sure to check in within the first 30 minutes of your reservation or the booking system will cancel it and make the room available to another group.

Book a group study room online 

Using your smartphone, tablet or computer, you can also connect to the Concordia Library Booking System and reserve a room that fits your team’s availability.


What’s the advantage of a group study room?

Close the door to the outside world, settle into a comfy spot at the six-seater table and connect your laptop to a bright 46” LCD screen.

Wait a second! One of your team members is missing? No problem — the wide-angle USB camera makes virtual meetings possible too.

And best of all, group study rooms at the Webster and Vanier libraries are open 24/7 during the academic year. The Grey Nuns Reading Room and its dedicated study areas reopen on September 6 with convenient hours for individual and group sessions.
