Newlin Room

The Newlin Room is a classroom/meeting space located on the main floor of Miller Library.

The Newlin Room, on the main floor of Miller Library, is used primarily for library instruction and as a space for student work and study.  With the recent addition of flexible seating, upgraded presentation technologies, and versatile power connectivity, we now offer it as a reservable space ideal for departmental or club meetings, board meetings, workshops, or individual class sessions.  Features of the room include:

  • Seating for up to 70, depending upon arrangement
  • Two Epson Smart Projectors
  • Two projection screens, which can be mirrored or used separately
  • A laptop cart with several PCs and Macs
  • The Owl camera to enhance hybrid meetings
  • Tables and chairs with locking wheels to provide flexibility of room arrangement

If you would like to reserve the room, please contact Alex Baker ([email protected]) or Jennifer Nesbitt ([email protected]).  You must provide the department name and name of the meeting facilitator when making your reservation.  Then, fill out the reservation form provided by Campus Events.

Please keep the following guidelines in mind: 

  • At this point, we are unable to accommodate scheduling of regular classes in the Newlin Room.
  • Library instructional classes will be prioritized over any other use of the space.
  • Start time for any events cannot precede 8:30 am during business days nor 10:30 am weekends.
  • Food and beverage service IS PERMITTED in this space.
  • While it is located on the group study floor, volume must be kept at a reasonably low level (no live music, please.)
  • Furniture arrangement prior to the meeting is the responsibility of the department reserving the space; please factor this time into your reservation request.  We suggest allowing 15-30 minutes for setup before your meeting's start time.
  • Please contact the Help Desk in advance for assistance with technology needs for your meeting.

Thank You!
