Studying in Briggs Library

Sure, you can go anywhere from here, but while you’re here, where do you study?  The Collegian, SDSU’s student newspaper, has reported that, as a result of increased enrollment at SDSU, some residence hall dayrooms have been converted to dorm rooms.  The Collegian article notes that student affairs staff members believe other spaces in the university can compensate for the lost dayrooms.  They urge students to think of the library when looking for study space (Poppinga A1+).  The library staff agrees!  Please, feel free to come and study in the library.  We have many different options to offer.


·        Individual study space, including carrel-type desks

·        Tables for group work

·        Study rooms for group work

·        Sofa area on the upper level

·        Lounge chairs

·        Quiet area on the upper level


Four of our group study rooms can be reserved in advance at the Circulation Desk.  Ten group study rooms are available on a first-come, first serve basis.


The library has wireless access and laptops you can check out.


You may be surprised how many of your friends and classmates you’ll run into in the library.  Our sofa area with its famous blue couches is an excellent area for conversation and also a popular place for naps.


The library’s regular hours are:


Monday-Thursday 7:45 a.m.-midnight

Friday 7:45 a.m.-9 p.m.

Saturday 1 p.m.-9 p.m.

Sunday 1 p.m.-midnight


We’re open over holidays, but our hours vary.  Click here for a complete listing of our hours for the semester.


See you soon!
