Research Help Office

The RHO is located on the upper level, at the top of the main stairway. It is staffed by librarians and specially trained students. We can save you a lot of time and frustration, so ask us when you need help!

Group Study Rooms

The rooms on the lower level can be reserved for two hours at a time. You can make a reservation up to two weeks in advance.

There are also rooms on the upper level that are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. They're in the quiet section, so shhhhhh.

Quiet Study Area

The south side of the upper level is for quiet study only.

If there are people talking in this area, let us know so we can quiet them.

Office of Technology Services

The OTS support desk is located on the upper level of the library, next to the RHO. Come here for problems with your laptop or IIT Banner account. 


IIT Libraries

There are two other libraries on the main (or Mies) campus: the Graham Resource Center and the Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions Library.

There is also the IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law Library at the Downtown campus, and the Institute for Food Safety and Health Library at the Moffett campus.
