Medical Campus Study Room Guidelines

School of Public Health Policy

Boston University Medical Campus students, in concert with the student services and administrative offices of the Medical Campus, developed and adopted the following guidelines for use in study rooms. The purpose of these guidelines is to ensure that study room space is used in a productive and collegial manner for group study. These guidelines are posted in each study room so that Medical Campus students may actively manage their study room spaces.


  1. Use of study rooms is available to Boston University Medical Campus students who are current Terrier Card holders.
  2. It is expected that students will resolve any difficulties pertaining to use of the study rooms according to the guidelines.
  3. Please respect the schedule for room use posted by BUMC IT—Central Scheduling. Meetings and classes may be added to the schedule at any time, and students utilizing the room for study purposes must yield to a scheduled meeting or class. Questions may be directed to or 617-358-1111.
  4. Windows to study rooms must remain uncovered so others can see if the room is in use.
  5. Doors to study rooms must be left unlocked at all times while the room is in use.
  6. Study rooms are designated as Individual or Group Study based on the room size and are noted in the room number sign at the entry to the room. A group is defined as 3+ students. One student in a designated individual study room must share the room with other arriving students and all must maintain a quiet environment.
  7. Room audio-visual equipment must be turned off following study use.
  8. Personal items should not be left unattended. The risk of damage to or loss of unattended items is assumed by owner.
  9. Trash should be placed into the trash receptacles in or outside the rooms.
  10. BUMC Administration may restrict the use of study rooms or request that students vacate rooms that need to be utilized for scheduled classes, meetings, or emergencies.

In the event of an emergency, please call Public Safety at 617-414-4444 or at 4-4444 from the nearest house telephone.

For environmental needs (e.g., the room is too hot or too cold), contact the Control Center via email at, by phone at 617-414-4144, or from a house telephone at 4-4144.
