Room Reservations and Use

​The DePaul Loop Library and John T. Richardson Library provide group and solo study spaces, media studios, and conference and meeting rooms that can be reserved by current DePaul students, faculty, and staff for DePaul-related activities when the library is open. 

The following policies apply to all reservable spaces at the library. 


  • Reservations can only be made by current DePaul students, faculty, and staff.
  • Spaces cannot be reserved for recurring classes. Academic Affairs manages the assignments of courses to classrooms at the Loop and Lincoln Park campuses.
  • The Office of Academic Space and Scheduling offers a variety of classroom space on the Lincoln Park campus to host non-instructional or co-curricular events. 


Respect for those studying and conducting research in the library should be observed at all times. To minimize noise disruption:
  • Room doors should not be propped open
  • Sound volume for media should be kept at an intermediate level
  • Groups entering and leaving the library meeting spaces should interact with low voice levels.
  • Users should follow the library’s Noise Policy 

Personal Belongings 

The library is not responsible for theft, damage, or loss of personal property. Users should keep laptops, purses, book bags, and other valuables in their direct supervision at all times.

Please return all room furniture to where it was found.
