Don’t have time to get home before your online class starts? Quiet places on campus allow you to attend your courses while still practicing social distancing. Whether you have an online class scheduled too close to an in-person class, or just need somewhere to attend your online courses without distractions, use this resource to find a study space. Study spaces include first-come-first-served classroom desks, study room reservations, individual desk reservations, and general open seating in the MU Student Center and Memorial Union.
Individual Classroom Desks – Available for Reservation
Reserving a desk for online classes:
Go to ems.missouri.edu. University of Missouri students should sign in with their single-sign on. If this is your first time signing in or you have not logged in recently, your account will reactivate on your initial sign in attempt. Please log in a second time to access the reservation request homepage. If after multiple attempts at signing in, you still receive an error message, try clearing your cache for all time and closing your browser before signing in again. This site works best with the Chrome or Firefox browser. Using an incognito window in Google Chrome may also help with sign in issues.
Once logged in, select “Book Now” for the Request a Campus Space for Online Classwork template. Fill in the desired date/time, add a building filter if desired and click “Search” for a seat. Select the green plus sign by the seat you want, edit number of attendees to 1, click “Add Room” and then click “Next Step”. On the next page, finalize the contact information and click “Create Reservation” to complete the reservation of a seat.
5-10 minutes prior to the start of your reservation you will receive an email asking you to check in; the link to check-in or cancel is in the email. You can check in to your reservation 5 minutes prior to the start time. We ask you also check out online when you are finished with your reservation.
For direct assistance with reservations, please contact the Office of Reservations & Events Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
