Patrons are responsible for the cleanliness and order of the classroom following use. The Library is not responsible for left or unattended items.

Booking requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis; however, general restrictions include:

Use of classroom by student groups or undergraduates, unaccompanied by a faculty member or graduate teaching assistant.

Use of classrooms by non-University groups without library collaboration.

  • A two-day cancellation notice is requested; contact tale@vt.edu.

  • With the exception of the SCALE-UP classroom, library classrooms are not to be reserved for the exclusive use of semester-long courses. We will work to accommodate as much library and university programming in the classrooms as possible.

Please note: The periods from late January to mid-April and late August to late October are especially busy times for library instruction. The classrooms will be kept available for library instruction during these periods.
