Consultation Spaces

Purpose and Audience

The Library provides a consultation space at WongAvery Library (Room 207) for campus units, programs, instructors, and teaching assistants (TAs) to support student learning and success. Interested parties that would like to meet with individual or small groups of students in the Library, regularly or occasionally, to conduct in-person or remote office hours, enrichment activities, or outreach activities can do so by reserving this room.

Room 207 is an enclosed room with a capacity of 6-8 people, making it ideal for hosting makeup exams, accommodating students with specialized/individual instructional needs (including additional testing time), and meeting with small groups of students.

We also welcome inquiries from any campus stakeholder about the possibility of participation, and how we can help to meet the needs of the students you serve. Don't hesitate to reach out about other spaces in the Library that might better accommodate your needs.


  • Not intended for larger group instructions. Room 207 in WongAvery Library can comfortably accommodate up to 8 individuals. Those needing larger spaces can attempt to reserve Geisel Room 721 (7th Floor), which can accommodate up to 16, through the group study room reservation system.
  • Campus units, programs, instructors, and TAs may reserve time slots for up to 3 hours per day, up to 3 days per week.
  • Eligible participants needing irregular time slots, as needed and available, are accommodated based on current availability.
  • A monthly calendar of reservations will be posted on the room's window so that walk-in students can identify whether/when someone with which they wish to meet may be available in the space.
  • If you need assistance asking other users to vacate the room, alert Library staff. 
  • Subject Librarians may be available to meet with TAs or instructors prior to their consultation period(s), or to participate in the consultation(s). Contact your Subject Librarian directly or alert us when reserving the space that you’d like the Subject Librarian to contact you.
    • Subject Librarians can also provide instructional workshops for larger groups, if preferred, submit a request .
