Group study rooms are in high demand and are for the exclusive use of Utica University students for academic purposes.  Because of this high demand, they are not available for faculty, classes, or other group use.

The Kelly Teaching & Learning Center classroom is at the center of the Learning Commons on the first floor of the Library. It is designated for library instruction and serves as an open lab for students when it is not in use by library staff.
