STUDY SPACE EXPECTATIONS

Emily McDonald

Please be aware of and honor all policies on the Our Way Forward website.  Please note, all event attendees must remain masked while sharing an indoor space regardless of vaccination status. 

Reserved classrooms will require a student ID card for entrance. Only one student ID is required, and that student is responsible for the condition of the room and adherence to all guidelines. One complaint about lack of adherence to these rules will result in a warning from the Department Chair or Dean. A second complaint will result in loss of room privileges.

If you cannot access your room during your reserved time, please contact University Police at their non-emergency number for assistance. You will be required to show your confirmation email for entrance into the room. 

  • All prioritization of space usage will shift to accommodate quarantine and public safety needs, as necessary.  Cancellations may occur up to the start of your event given public health concerns and conditions. 
  • The privilege of using this room is in accordance with the Wake Forest University Honor Code. If the guidelines are not adhered to, those students who have reserved the room will lose the privilege of reserving study space.
  • Reserved study spaces are designed for individual or small group study; talking about academic work and projects at a reasonable tone is permitted.
  • All reservable student study space occupancies are for a maximum of 6 students, regardless of what is posted in the room (this is for academic or event use). If group study becomes problematic, the allowed capacity will be reduced to 1.
