On-Campus Study Spaces During Virtual Instruction

Study spaces inside the College of Business Building

A Space to Study

During virtual instruction, access to an adequate study space is a basic need. We recognize there are students without adequate space in their homes and/or limited access to reliable Wi-Fi.

Due to modifications to LA County Reopening Higher Education Public Health Guidelines, we are now able to address this need by piloting an on-campus Study Spaces program for students.

Please scroll down for important information on how to reserve for a Study Space.

Reserving a Study Space Seat

Read the following carefully:

  • Students must reserve a Study Space seat (only CPP students may reserve).
  • Reservations can be made in 30-minute increments, up to 120 minutes per session.
  • Students are limited to reserving two 120 minute sessions per week.
