Library Spaces

The library has a space for you! We offer a great variety, ranging from configurable furniture in collaborative spaces to quiet, individual study rooms. In addition, specific rooms can be reserved for events, group study, or group study with conferencing technology.

Reservable Rooms

These rooms are larger than group study spaces and can be used to host larger campus events such as public presentations or specialized class instruction. Schedules for these rooms are visible via the Macalester College Campus Reservations tool. To log in use your Macalester College credentials. To reserve a room please fill out the Request a Reservable Library Space form.

Study Days/ Finals Week

We follow campus policy for booking reservable spaces during study days and finals.

  • Study Day 1: We will accept reservations for optional events that cannot reasonably be held at other times in the semester, providing the the event’s purpose and attendance number are unlikely to impede student study outside the room.
  • Study Day 2: No activities may be scheduled.
  • Finals Week: Requests for space will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
