How to Reserve a Quiet Study Space on Campus

Dining Hall

NVC Dining Hall as Quiet Study Space

Baruch College is providing quiet study spaces for students.  At this this time there are 2 locations on the first floor of the Newman Vertical Campus:

  • Multi-Purpose Room – 21 seats
  • Dining Room/Cafeteria – 37 seats

Students may reserve a seat in either space for a four-hour time slot (8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. or 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.) using the reservation system.

Users of the quiet study spaces must follow the University’s Student Conduct Protocol.

Please note that quiet study spaces are not in the Library or managed by the Library.

The Quiet Study spaces will be cleared of all occupants at 12:00 noon each day for cleaning before the afternoon session. The spaces will be cleared again at 6:00 p.m. to clean them for use on the following morning.

No food or drink may be brought into any of the Quiet Study spaces.

Students who use the multi-purpose room should use the 25th Street entrance to the Newman Vertical Campus.  Students who use the Cafeteria space should use the 24th Street entrance.

Submission of a reservation request will generate an automated email response with instructions to download the Everbridge health screening app. Visitors must complete a Symptom Checker in Everbridge on the day of each visit to ensure that the information provided is current.
