Study Options

You will find a variety of different study options in the UHV Library. 

2nd Floor

The 2nd floor is the first floor of the library. You will find study pods, lounge chairs, public computers, tables, study rooms, and an instruction lab, which is available whenever it is not being used to teach a class.

3rd Floor

The 3rd floor of the Library has been designated as a quiet zone for individual study. Study rooms along the perimeter of that floor provide the quiet and isolation sometimes necessary for intense study and reading. You will also find study pods, tables, collaboration and study rooms. 

Study & Collaboration Rooms

Group study rooms are on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the library. You may reserve a study room online or at the Circulation Desk (361-570-4177) on the 2nd floor of University Commons. Reservations cannot be made more than 48 hrs in advance. Rooms may be renewed at the Circ Desk if available. You must have a current student ID to checkout a study room.

University Commons has one conference room (2110) that holds up to 14 people and numerous other group study areas. Reservations for 2110, the Game Room, or the multipurpose room on the 1st floor are made through the UHV main events calendar. Walk ins are welcome when there are no reservations on the space.
