Are you looking for a new place to study? Try one of our nine Group Study Rooms or our Virtual Office Hour/Interview space on your next visit to the library. Our study rooms offer a variety of features to help you and your colleagues work or study collaboratively.
The “Five-A’s” of Zief’s Group Study Rooms:
Access: Our group study rooms are available to all current USF law students, faculty, and staff. Each offers a variety of essential resources. Group Study Rooms can accommodate 2 to 8 people for up to two hours at a time and are equipped with large tables, whiteboards, power outlets, and big screen TVs suitable for screen sharing. Our Virtual Office Hour/ Interview space offers students a private, professional environment for virtual meetings.
Assurance: Ever had a favorite study space become too popular? By booking ahead of time on the Zief study room booking website, students can reserve their favorite study spaces when they need them.
Agenda: As a law student, we know you’re a busy bee. Sometimes balancing your academic, professional, and personal tasks can be challenging. Study rooms may be booked up to three days in advance*, allowing you to plan ahead and better focus on completing your goals. Go, organization, go!
Anchor: Public spaces sometimes bring distraction, such as student traffic, building noises, and the stray unpaired bluetooth headphone. Stay anchored to your work in a study room with fewer interruptions.
Amity: Our group study rooms bring you and your classmates together, giving you a space to team up, study smarter, and prepare for the challenges ahead. As the beloved Calvin and Hobbes cartoonist Bill Watterson wrote: “Things are never quite as scary when you’ve got a best friend.”
With these 5 A’s, Zief hopes our group study rooms will help you earn some sweet A’s during law school!
