Faculty Research Study Rooms
The Monroe Library offers seven research study rooms and one collaborative study room available for use by full-time Loyola faculty who are engaged in research projects and special class preparation for one semester.

Graduate and honors students must complete an application form that is signed by their thesis or academic advisor and department chair.

- Research study rooms not used at least six times each month will be reassigned.
- Research studies are not automatically renewed; a new application must be submitted each semester for approval.
- Library materials used in the study must be checked out to the user.
- Research study rooms can only be used during regular library hours.
- Research study rooms are not awarded for the purpose of providing an alternative to a departmental office.
