  • one group media viewing room to view HCC course-related DVDs/videos - room number CL209.
  • one group computing room (with stations for two groups) - room number CL204.

Groups must use the online room bookings tool to request a room.

Please note the terms & conditions for using group study spaces:

  • groups consist only of 2-6 current HCC students, except CL239 which is for 2-4 students.
  • group work spaces are for academic purposes, such as group studying or group work on a computer or group viewing of video material for a course;
  • at least 2 group members need to be present for the duration of the booking (start to end);
  • group members need to be present in the group work space within 15 minutes of the start of the reservation, or the room may be given to another group;
  • be courteous & exit the room by the end of your booking time.
  • a group member needs to borrow/return a keyboard/mouse from the Check Out Desk to use the equipment in the Group Viewing Room and the Group Computing Rooms;
  • personal headphones need to be used when listening to audio - you may bring your own headphones or purchase them at the Check Out Desk;
  • beverages may be consumed in group work spaces.
  • group spaces may not be used by tutors or classroom instructors.
  • library staff may need to modify room requests in order to maximize availability of group study spaces - this may include changing rooms, and/or canceling requests.
  • requests must be confirmed using the link in the email sent to your HCC email address.

A group may reserve a group work space for up to three hours each day - three hours total use.
