Use of the Reading Room in the University Library

The University Library Reading Room (KEL 5400) is located on the 5th floor of the University Library. The Reading Room provides:

  • A quiet study space for use by all students during the library's open hours.
  • A venue to host events.

Hosting Events in the Reading Room

To preserve the room’s primary use as a quiet study area and to limit the number of events, events must be either library-sponsored programs or events which showcase the campus to the external community.

If you wish to book the Reading Room:

  • Email Joel Agg, Director of Event and Conference Services, ( describing your event.
  • Include the time, date, type of event, number of guests, number of off-campus guests. Indicate whether food and/or alcohol will be served. Explain how your event showcases the campus to the external community.”

The Event and Conference Services (ECS) site also has links to other services and general information about holding events on campus.
