Rackham Study Spaces

Rackham study spaces are open for reservations! The Rackham Graduate School has converted some of its spaces into socially distanced “study spaces” consisting of one table and one chair. Students may reserve a study space using the Study Spaces Reservation System up to 48 hours in advance of when they want to study in the Rackham Building.

Reserve a Student Study Space

  • Reserve study spaces during these blocks of time:
    • 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
    • 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
    • 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
  • Reserve a study space using the Study Spaces Reservation System.
  • Make your reservation up to 48 hours in advance. Reservations are open until the end of the study block.
  • You may select your study block time and date.
  • You’ll receive an email confirmation with your room and seat assignment along with a link to add your reservation to your Google Calendar, and a link to Rackham’s COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan.
  • Make sure you’ve received your confirmation email before heading to the Rackham Building. You will need it to check in.

How to Cancel Your Reservation

At the bottom of your reservation confirmation email, look for “To cancel this booking” and follow the link. You’ll need to log back into the system, and you will have the option to cancel an individual or all reservations.

Checking In

  • Wear a face covering and be prepared to show your reservation confirmation, MCard, and screening verification.
  • The Rackham Building’s exterior doors will be locked. Use your MCard to enter through the front doors.
  • Check-in is in the Main Lobby at the East Ticket Counter.

For Your Safety

For your safety and the safety of the community Rackham has put in place the following guidelines:

  • No food or drink in the study spaces.
  • Face coverings are required to be worn in study spaces at all times.
  • Only reserving U-M students are allowed in the study spaces. No guests, including children, are allowed.
  • All students must take their belongings and leave the building at the end of each study block (12:00 p.m., 4:00 p.m., and 8:00 p.m.). Each study space will be cleaned by U-M custodial staff before the start of the next study block.
  • Room supervisors will routinely check rooms on each floor to make sure all safety guidelines are adhered to and to ensure there are no issues related to study space assignments or room density requirements.
  • Students may be asked to show their MCard if issues with study space assignment and room capacity arise.
  • Students are allowed to study in their assigned study spaces only. Study in other spaces or hallways will not be permitted.
  • All study spaces will be distanced at least six feet apart.
  • Floor markings have been placed to encourage social distancing practices.
  • Signage will be placed in all active rooms to emphasize COVID-19 protocols.
  • Signage will be placed on the floor to identify assigned study spaces, for example, Room-Pod number 2014-AA.
