Level C, Academic Commons Group Studies:  Two glassed in study rooms with large-screen monitors, and one white board wall apiece. These spaces must be reserved (in person) at the Circulation /Reserve counter. These spaces are for Drew students and faculty only in groups of two or more. A Drew ID card is required to charge out the room key, the ID is held until the key is returned. Time period is two hours with the possibility of an extension, if no one else has signed up for the room. Note: because of the nature of the room enclosure, we request that noise be moderated while using these rooms. Note: users much provide their own laptops, but the connector cables are already installed (Mac users: ask at Reserve for the special Mac cable).

These spaces are for Drew students and faculty only in groups of two or more. A Drew ID card is required to charge out the room key, the ID is held until the key is returned.
