Subject: Use of Small Group Rooms (101, 106, 108, 110 and 120) in the Colbert Education Center and Library Building
Purpose: In response to recent conflicts among students related to the use of the small group study rooms on the first floor of the Colbert Education Center and Library (ECL), the following policy is established. These guidelines are seen as a temporary measure until the SGA has the opportunity to formulate a process governing student use of the ECL facility, to include development of a mechanism whereby students may reserve the small group study rooms on-line.
Students using the ECL facility are required to interact with others in a manner that demonstrates adherence to the highest standards of professionalism, collegiality and fairness.
As these are designated as group study rooms, (#s 101, 106, 108, 110 and 120) they are restricted to use by two or more students. Students studying alone should find more suitable space within the ECL.
Students may not leave personal belongings in the small classrooms overnight or for longer than one hour unattended. Kitchen appliances (coffee makers, heating coils, etc.) may not be used. Students are expressly forbidden from sleeping in the rooms overnight.
It is recommended that students limit their use of a room to eight hours per day. As part of professional conduct, please recognize that the use of these rooms is a privilege designed to benefit all students. Please use common sense in ensuring that the use of these rooms is distributed equitably.
Violations to this policy will be reported to the students’ deans and sanctions may be applied.
