Using Library Rooms

​​​Due to the coronavirus pandemic, campus libraries are currently closed. Tutoring and learning resources are available online.

Study rooms are available at each of Dallas College's main campuses. Each campus library has its own policies on study room use.

Quiet, individual study areas can be found in Rooms L206 and L207. Study carrels are on level 1.5 circulation. Group study can be found on Level 1, Level 3, on Level 2.5 and in Room L376 (when available).

Group study room guidelines are available here. Contact Cedar Valley library staff to reserve.

The Main Campus library has 3 group study rooms, including one with projection equipment and monitor.
  • Group study rooms are first come, first served
  • Groups with 3+ students have priority
  • Single users must yield to groups
  • Food and drinks are not allowed
  • The Click Share room with projection equipment can be reserved. Check out the Click Share button at the circulation desk. The Click Share button downloads software onto your laptop, so that your laptop projects its screen to the wall monitor.

All rooms are provided for the benefit of currently enrolled North Lake students, faculty and staff.
