Student Space Available for Studying and Private Appointments on Campus - UPDATED January 2022

McHenry Library

The increased use of video conferencing for healthcare appointments, group meetings, and remote/online instruction has underscored a need for more student space on campus. We are pleased to share that UC Santa Cruz is able to provide students with additional reservable space on campus for confidential meetings and drop-in space for studying. This kind of multipurpose space is important both for supporting students with their studies and overall well being (community message 11/03/2021.)

There are two rooms available for reservation in the Dean of Student Office in the Hahn Student Services Building when the office is open for in-person operations. These office spaces are best suited for private video conferencing meetings. 

Please be advised the Dean of Students Office is currently offering remote services only until January 31, 2022; as such, these spaces are not available for reservation at this time. Please check back on February 1 for guidance on how to make a reservation.
