Study room policies

  • Mezzanine and Concourse Level rooms are intended for scholarly, unpaid, individual or group activities. They are not to be used as a place of business.
  • While talking is permitted in the study rooms, we ask that patrons please respect other library users in the vicinity. The study rooms are not sound-proof, so excessive noise levels will disturb other library users.
  • Covered beverages are permitted in the rooms but food is not.
  • Rooms can be booked a maximum of four hours per day.
  • Keys must be returned at the Service Desk at least 15 minutes before library closing time.
  • Late fees will be applied for keys that are not returned on time. A replacement fee will be charged for lost keys.
  • The University of Toronto Libraries are not responsible for any loss or damage of items left unattended in the rooms.
  • Commercial activities are not permitted.
