Anyone with a WSU email account can reserve a group study room for up to four hours, per 24 hour period. All reservation requests must be confirmed within 30 minutes of requesting. Reservations can be confirmed or cancelled by responding to the notification email sent by the system at the time of the initial reservation request.

The Love Your WSU Libraries campaign is a contest open to all Washington State University students. Contestants are invited to take pictures of themselves “loving” or showing their appreciation for WSU Libraries and submit their image on our Love Your WSU Libraries webpage: loveyourlibs.wsu.edu
The reviewed and approved submissions will be posted to the WSU Libraries Pullman Twitter account and Holland and Terrell Libraries Facebook wall. All students have the opportunity to vote for their favorite image and the winners will be awarded prizes and have their picture featured on the contest’s results posters. Upon submission, students will have agreed to allow for their picture to be property of WSU Libraries. The Libraries may use these photos for promotional purposes.
