Click to view all bookable spaces. Select your reservation time using the booking grid, then enter your name and Loyola email address to reserve a space. You will receive a reservation confirmation with a check in code.

How do I know which space I reserved? Each reservable space is designated by a floor number (C 2nd FL, IC 3rd FL), direction (Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, Southwest), the type of space (study room, study table, computer workstation, armchair), and a number. For example: IC-2nd Fl-Northeast-Armchair 1.

What do I do when I walk in without a reservation? You can still reserve and use a space, you just need to scan the QR code at the space by using the camera on your phone or enter the link listed at the seat. Each study room, study table seat, computer workstation seat, and armchair on the 2nd and 3rd floors has a sign in front of it.
