Study Room Rules

Please note the following rules for using and reserving a study room in the SOWELA Library (Lake Charles only):

  • You must check-in at the library's Help Desk with your SOWELA ID before using a study room - even if you have a reservation.
  • You can reserve a study room up to 1 business day in advance if a time slot is available.  If you are more than 15 minutes late, you forfeit your reservation of the study room.
  • There is a 2-hour time limit for each use or reservation.  If there is not a pre-existing reservation, the room can be renewed for an additional two hours or until the next scheduled reservation (whichever occurs first). Rooms can only be renewed at the end of the 2-hour limit.
  • You may only have one reservation at a time per day.  You may not make additional reservations for the same day while you are using a study room.
  • Study room use and reservations apply to all members of a study group.  Individuals within a study group may not each place back-to-back or successive reservations to extend the study room reservation beyond the initial 2-hour time limit.  Study room use can only be extended if time slots are available as described above.
  • The conference room is only available for students if they need to use a dry erase board or for study groups of at least 6 people.
  • No food or drinks without a lid are allowed in the study rooms.
  • Anyone refusing to abide by or attempting to circumvent these rules will forfeit their use or reservation of the study rooms for the day.
  • The SOWELA Library is not responsible for any items left or lost in the study rooms or library.

Most study rooms are equipped with a dry erase board.  Markers are available to check out at the library's help desk.
