CLASS: Collaborative Learning and Study Spaces

In order to foster opportunities for students to work together on group projects or study together, SCC has CLASS (Collaborative Learning and Study Spaces) rooms and spaces around our campuses where students can collaborate. Currently most CLASS spaces can be reserved no more than 1 week in advance, but otherwise they are available on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, review the Usage Policy.

Collaborative Learning spaces are locations where students can:

  • Work on team projects
  • Conduct meetings and discussions
  • View a computer screen together
  • Study with others
  • Spread out laptops, books, and papers
  • Avoid distraction
  • Feel comfortable

Please note that most of these spaces are in the library, and library group study rooms have their own policy for use (you must have a student ID and check in at the desk to use a study room). The other spaces at the central campus are shown a PDF map below.

For more information or to provide feedback on these CLASS rooms, please email Mark Roseveare at
