The Computer Commons will look into changing the time blocks for study room reservations.  The staff tries to be very accommodating. If students want a time that is less than 1 hour, they can speak to staff who can go into the system and reserve a room based on availability. If students request additional time, staff can also help arrange this based on availability.  Current reservation time blocks are 1 hour, 1.5 hours, and 2 hours. The Commons will explore impact on adding 0.5 hour, 2.5 hours, and 3-hour blocks. Longer periods will decrease the number of reservations.

This fall the Commons lost 1 study room which was a result of Honors & PTK moving to EST Hall.  The rooms are reserved approximately 70% of the time.
