Group Study Room Guidelines

  • The current school policy is that all personnel on campus must be wearing a mask when indoors, regardless if you are in a study room or not. Even if you are in a study room alone, your mask must be worn. If you are not eating or drinking, your mask MUST be on. Chairs are not to be moved from tables to congregate with friends while eating in the cafeteria. In an effort to accommodate more eating area, tables with chairs will be moved into the atrium. Again, chairs shall not be moved. Shall non-compliance to the mask policy continue, the school will consider closing all study rooms around campus and in the library in an effort to keep classes and labs in person. Study rooms have already been closed due to non-compliance for deep cleaning. 
  • Group study rooms are available for 2 or more PCOM students and are for their exclusive use.
