How to Make A Room Reservation

Please Note: Librarians have first priority in scheduling classrooms at the beginning of each semester. Reservation requests for Classroom 228 will not be approved during the first month of each semester or until RISD instruction librarians have been able to secure teaching spaces for their classes.


Select Library Classrooms or Library Conference Rooms in the box on the left. Classrooms have a digital projector or monitor with laptop hook up, conference rooms do not.


Scroll over to bring up a room picture and seating capacity. Choose the day you would like to reserve from the calendar, then click on the room and time on the chart to begin making your reservation. If you would like more than one block of time, you may select several boxes, up to a 3 hour maximum per week.   If you need more than 3 hours per week, please contact the Reference Desk, 709-5902.

Please Note: You must be a current RISD student, faculty, or staff member and use your RISD email address when making a reservation.

Please stop by the Reference Desk on the 1st floor of the Library to be let into the rooms.

If you are 15 minutes late for your room reservation, your reservation will be cancelled.

Rooms close 30 minutes before the Library closes with the exception of Room 228.

Please call or email with any questions: 401-709-5902 or
