Current UConn students can reserve a Homer Babbidge Library group study room online, or by scanning a QR code outside of each room. All you need is your NetID. To use D!BS,
- Log in here with your NetID: http://s.uconn.edu/dibs
- Select the number of people in your group, how many hours you want a room, and when you want it.
- Click ‘Search’ for a list of times that different rooms are available.
- Enter your name and UConn email address.
- Enter your cell phone number to receive text confirmation and reminders.
- You’ve got D!BS! You’ll receive an email confirmation and reminders 15 minutes before your session begins and ends.
- Show up to the room on time with at least one other member of your group.
Who can use D!BS?
All UConn students.
Can I reserve a room to use by myself?
No, group study rooms are just that – group study for 2 or more people. Individual study rooms are available for checkout at the iDesk.
Can I reserve a room to use anytime the library is open?
No, reservations end 2 hours before the library closes, but you are welcome to use any unoccupied group study room after that until the library closes.
How many rooms are there?
There are a total of 32 rooms, which can accommodate anywhere from 2 to 18 people!
Where are the rooms located?
What is in each room?
All rooms have tables and chairs, and most rooms have whiteboards (bring your own markers.) The iStudios on Level 1 have TVs with VGA and HDMI inputs. Full room information is available in the D!BS system.
How long can I stay in a room?
You can reserve group study rooms for 1 to 3 hour sessions.
How far in advance can I reserve a study room?
2 days before your study session.
How many reservations can I have in the system at a time?
Two per day.
What if I make a reservation and then decide I don’t want the room?
You can cancel your reservation through a link in your confirmation email.
What if I booked a study room, but arrive to find that someone is in it?
Please explain to them that you have a reservation for the room, and show them your D!BS confirmation message. If you have any issues, please contact the iDesk.
What if I want to take a break from studying and leave the room?
The rooms will be unlocked, so we recommend that you take valuables with you when you take a break. The Library is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
