Student Services

An overview of the library services available to students at Santa Fe College.

Reserve a Study Room

During the fall semester, the study rooms will be updated with new furniture and technology. The availability of rooms may change throughout this process.

Group Study Rooms

Currently enrolled or employed SF students, faculty, and staff may make a reservation for a study room through the online booking system. Second floor rooms may be reserved up to 2 weeks in advance. First floor rooms may be reserved up to 24 hours in advance. Users must go to the 1st floor Circulation Desk or 2nd floor Reference Desk at the time of their reservation to receive the room reservation card. Failure to show within 15 minutes after the reserved time will result in cancelation of that reservation. Anyone using a study room without a reservation will be asked to yield the room for a group with a reservation. 

The Library currently has three types of study rooms. Availability of rooms may change throughout the Fall 2019 semester as the study rooms are updated with new furniture and technology.
