Reserve a Seat FAQ

What libraries can I book a seat in? 

The study seats and computers in Homer Babbidge and just the computers in Stamford are reservable. We are working on adding seats in Avery Point and Waterbury over the next few weeks.

 

Do I have to make a reservation to print?

No. There are quick printing stations in Bookworms Cafe and at the UITS Service Desk in the north entrance. If you are in the library, the printers are still available for use on Level 1. 

 

Do I have to reserve a space in Bookworms?

The seating around Bookworms is available first-come, first-served Monday-Friday – 7:30am-12pm. Once the building is open the seats are bookable through Reserve a Seat.

 

How do I know what kind of seat it is – desk? couch? table?

We are working on adding more information and photos of the seats over the next few weeks so hang tight! 

 

Are there any spaces for groups?

Group study rooms are not available. We have a few spaces on Level 1 that have several seats near each other for group work. They include:
Level 1 Purple 238, 239, 240 (large table with three seats)
Level 1 Purple 241, 242, 243, 244 (large table with four seats)
Level 1 Purple 245, 246, 247, 248, 249, 250 (individual lounge-style chairs in a corner spot)
Level 1 Yellow 260, 261, 262, 263, 264 (individual lounge-style chairs in a corner spot)
Level 1 Pink 293, 294, 295, 296 (large table with four seats)
Level 1 Pink 316, 317 (large table with two seats)
Level 1 Pink 325, 326 (large table with two seats – white board behind it)
Level 1 Pink 327, 328 (large table with two seats)

There are also several great group study locations available in other campus buildings through Nexus.

 

How do I cancel my reservation?

There is a link in the bottom of your email reservation for quick cancellation. We ask you please do this so others may use the seat. 

 

I need to watch a DVD. Which seats have a Blue-ray DVD player?

The seat names/numbers are Level 1 Blue 144 and Level 1 Blue 145 in Homer Babbidge. To narrow your search, select ‘seat-with power outlet – no workstation’ in the category filter.

 

What if my class is at noon? Can I check in early?

Unfortunately we cannot open the spaces prior to 12:00 for early check in. 

 

If I have online classes only can I still book a seat?

Yes, we simply ask that you follow UConn’s off-campus and commuter protocols
