Most spaces that have been available at Randolph-Macon College in the past are still available. They're just socially distanced now, so you need to follow some basic safety guidelines. Guidelines below for the Library are similar to the guidelines you'll find across campus.

Because of COVID-19, there are a few changes to using the McGraw-Page Library this fall. Learn more here.
Study rooms are located on the second floor of the Library. While they are not soundproof, these rooms have doors what close, offering a lot of privacy. They can be used for online classes or private conversations such as counseling or doctor appointments. During the coronavirus, we ask that only one person use the study rooms at a time, and face coverings are required in study rooms at all times.

Study carrels are individual desks located throughout the second floor of the McGraw-Page Library. Some offer a lot of privacy, others are more open and less private.
A small number of carrels can be reserved using this link: https://rmc.libcal.com/reserve/studyrooms
The booths located on the first floor toward the back of the Library are some of the most popular study spots in the building. They are currently outfitted with plexiglass so that two people can study at one table simultaneously. Booth seating is first come, first served and cannot be reserved at this time.
Tables of various sizes are located throughout the Library on both floors. A small number can accommodate two studying individuals during coronovirus. Most can only fit one while maintaining 6 ft distance. But you can still study with your friends, because some of our tables are located in close by others. It's not quite the same as crowding around a table to share notes, but not as isolated as a study room can feel!
While some of our tables are near whiteboards, the Library also has a number of portable whiteboards that you can drag anywhere in the building (yes, even take them in the elevator!).
Need to get out of your room to focus? The 24/7 space in the Werner Pavilion is accessible by fob all night long. There are bathrooms and vending machines, just please remember to step outside to eat your snack.
