Library Hours

Food & Drink in the Library

You will probably spend a lot of time in the library, and we know that you will probably want to eat and drink while you are studying.  On floors 2 - 5, you may have covered beverages and small contained snacks.  If you are eating a meal, take a break, and eat in the third floor lounge, or the Law Student Lounge on the fourth floor.

Study Rooms

There are 15 study rooms within the library. Groups of two or more can reserve a room for up to four hours per day. Study rooms can be reserved online or at the Information Desk.

Noise Guidelines

Do you need to discuss an assignment with your classmate, or do you want a quiet study space where you won't be disturbed? The library has designated noise zones to accommodate your needs.

Green zone - 3rd & 4th floors - collaborative, quiet conversational noise.

Yellow zone - 2nd & 4th floors - quiet place for group and individual study. Minimal whispered conversation.

Red zone - 1st floor - silent individual study. No conversation or food. Quiet group work in study rooms.

ID Card for Photocopying and Borrowing Privileges

Your ID will be available for pick up at the Information Desk in the Law Library.  You will need to present a photo ID to pick up your UConn ID.  Your ID is also used to check out books, and can be loaded with Huskybucks and used to pay for photocopying and some other purposes.
