Study Space

The Law Library offers a number of different study spaces to accommodate your needs.  As you walk through the library you will notice some comfortable lounge chairs, numerous study carrels, and large tables.  If you would like to eat while studying, please sit in the “Atrium Café”, a covered courtyard with bistro tables and a closed-captioned flat screen t.v.  

Another popular study area is the Rosen Reading Room, a designated "silent" study area, accessible through the Reserve Room.  

Be sure to check them all out, and decide which best suits you.

Group Study Rooms

Many law students find it helpful to work in groups, whether on a course project or when studying for finals.  Recognizing this need, the library has created a number of group study rooms on Floor 2.  These rooms must be reserved at the Circulation Desk and are available on a first-come first-served basis.

Computer Access 

There are two areas in the Law Library with desktop computers for student use.  On the third floor, there is the Electronic Research Center (ERC). Near the restrooms on Floor 2 is the Ruger Computer Center.  The Ruger Computer Center is limited to law student use and requires a NetID login.  Some workstations in the ERC do not require a login and are open to non-law patrons.

Laptops & Wireless

Wherever you choose to study in the Law Library, you will be able to access AirOrangeX, Syracuse University’s wireless network service, with your laptop.  To find out more about using AirOrangeX, please see our Laptop Wireless Internet Access web page.  There are also laptop ports located throughout the library offering wired connectivity.
