Reserving Group Study Rooms (GSRs)

The Group Study Room reservation service is available to full time Wharton students.  Any member of your study group who is a full-time Wharton student should be able to make the reservation for the group.  Full-time Wharton students can reserve up to 90 minutes at a time in a GSR.  You can use your mobile device or your laptop to reserve the resource.

About the Group Study Rooms (GSRs): 

  • Please see the following article on proper usage of the GSRs: Group Study Rooms Policy.
  • You can connect your laptop to a GSR monitor using the monitor cables, or connect wirelessly, depending on which GSR you are using. 
  •  USB ports:  All GSR computers have USB ports for you to plug in a flash drive. 
    • All-in-One computers: look on the left side of the computer, about 5 inches from the bottom.
    • Desktop Computers: these are stored in the cabinets along the wall.  Open the cabinet and plug in the USB drive.
  • If you have issues with the GSR, please see our troubleshooting article: Troubleshooting GSRs.
  • NOTE: Students from another college at Penn who are taking a Wharton class are not able to reserve GSRs in Huntsman Hall. However, GSRs, as well as multi-media rooms, café study booths, and seminar rooms can be reserved at Van Pelt Library with a Pennkey (click here for more info).
