There are a variety of different spaces for studying in the Libraries. We have Quiet Study Areas, Group Study Areas, Group Study Rooms, Study Carrels, and Computer Labs/Areas.

Quiet Zones define the Quiet Study Floors/Areas. A Quiet Zone is an area designated specifically for quiet study and reading. 

  • Green Library (GL), MMC
    All areas of the 3rd, 6th, & 7th floors.
  • Hubert Library (HL), BBC
    All areas of the 3rd floor.

Group Study Rooms can be reserved online. Limited numbers of Group Study Rooms are located at both the Green Library & Hubert Library.  Group Study Rooms are limited to enrolled FIU students. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis OR can be scheduled ahead of time online.

Student Carrels for graduate students and Ph.D. candidates are available on a first-come, first-served basis. There are a limited number of carrels available.   

Open Group Study Areas are available on the non-quiet floors of the Libraries. These areas allow for moderate levels of noise and conversation (while not disrupting others) and collaborative group work. 

Computer Labs/Computer areas are also available to support education and learning at FIU. This includes conducting research for assignments, preparing and printing documents, accessing online coursework, e-mailing instructors and class members, and other related activities. A limited number of laptops are also available for checkout from Device Checkout at the Hub at GL or the 1st-floor Checkout desk at HL.
