Study Spaces at the Library

The Library provides space and equipment for Cal Maritime students to study and collaborate on academic work.

In addition to open space, the Library has a large student study room (capacity 24, the “Green Room”), and a small study room off the Green Room (capacity 6), both equipped with white boards. The Green Room is also equipped with a projector, which may be connected to a laptop and used by students. The Library also has couches, comfortable chairs, five individual study carrels, an area with 14 computers for student use, and some tables separate from the main library space suitable for group work. Movable white boards are available for student use.
