STUDY SPACE EXPECTATIONS

Emily McDonald

Reserved study spaces are designed for individual or small group study for a maximum of 6 students, regardless of what is posted in the room. Reserved classrooms 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.

Everyone must remain masked while sharing an indoor space regardless of vaccination status.

If you cannot access your room during your reserved time, please contact University Police at their non-emergency number (336-758-5591) for assistance. You will be required to show your confirmation email for entrance into the room. 

While in the space, please:

  • Avoid eating or drinking (even if food and drink are normally allowed) with the exception of brief sips of water to limit removing face coverings indoors around other people.
  • Do not move furniture or take furnishings out of the space.
  • Limit the use of shared equipment, e.g., dry erase markers, individual whiteboards, lab equipment, and musical instruments. If shared equipment is used, clean before and after use.   

Before you leave, please:  

  • Throw away all trash and clean up any messes.
  • Erase all boards.
  • Turn off all A/V equipment and lights
  • Close all windows 
  • These spaces close for use when it is time for janitorial staff to clean. Be respectful to facilities and custodial staff.
  • Students must leave the room at the end of their reserved time

Remember:

  • 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.
