Optometry Library Study Rooms: Reservations

Life & Health Sciences Division, Optometry & Health Sciences Library Study rooms.

The  Fong Optometry and Health Sciences Library offers reservation-based group study or meeting rooms that include whiteboards and WiFi. Rooms are available for use during library open hours.



  • Rooms  490D, 490E, 490F and 490G in Minor Hall may only be used for Library-related or University-related events.
  • Use is restricted to the authorized events only and only for the date and time approved. 
  • Other UCB Library groups may request use of the rooms after the Optometry Library and School of Optometry instructional needs are met.


  • Reservation priority is given to Library instruction sessions, and to the faculty and students of the UC Berkeley School of Optometry. Although we wish to be accommodating, Library instruction has priority.
  • During heavy instruction periods (e.g., early- to mid-semester), we may need to limit how far in advance reservations can be made.
