Space Availability - UCSB Library (Spring 2021)

The UCSB Library is offering limited study space for UCSB students, faculty, and staff. Seats are available by reservation only. Reservations can be made up to two weeks in advance and users can book up to 15 hours per week.

Fill out the reservation request using your full name, ucsb.edu email address, and perm number or employee ID. Using false email addresses, false names, or bots can result in cancellation of reservations and referral to the Office of Student Conduct

Reservation requests will be reviewed by Library staff and approved for eligible users only. It may take up to 2 business days to approve your reservation.

You must check-in within the first 30 minutes of your reservation or your reservation will automatically be canceled and your seat will become available for another user to reserve. Please arrive at the beginning of your reservation time. Early entry will not be permitted.

If you would like to make a reservation longer than 90 minutes (the auto-selected option), when you click your start time on the seat availability page, go to the dropdown menu at the bottom of the page to choose a later end time.

NOTE: 30 minutes of "padding" will be added to the beginning and end of each reservation to allow for time between each study session.
