Great GCU library study rooms

You can study quietly and without interruption in the study rooms at the GCU Library. Although study spaces in the Library can be reserved on-site, booking in advance is the simplest way to guarantee a room.

You can schedule up to two one-hour sessions per week. You can borrow an HDMI cable to connect a laptop to the televisions in the larger study rooms.

The study rooms’ peace and quiet are their greatest advantage. If commuters or locals require a specific time and location to study, the study rooms are fantastic private settings.
