Sunrise Room


The east-facing Sunrise Room encloses the original UCSB Library entrance from the 1950’s. Stop by to see how the architects preserved the historic exterior Library building sign in this light-bathed open study room.

This glass-enclosed room, which is normally set up as a reading room, is best utilized for smaller meetings, discussions, and receptions that do not require a high degree of privacy. The sides of the room facing the east exterior have shades that can be drawn to mitigate natural light, but the side facing into the Library does not have shades. A smaller enclosed room within the Sunrise Room can be used for storage or to stage catering, but access to the smaller room is only through the larger Sunrise Room and there are no shades between the two rooms.


The maximum occupancy for this room is 27 people.


This room can be reserved from 9 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday, except during staff holidays, final exam week, and the week directly preceding final exam week (“dead week”).


The Library does not provide technology in this room, except for standard power outlets and wireless Internet. Technology equipment and support can be arranged through UCSB Instructional Development. UCSB faculty, students, and staff can access the wireless network using their UCSB NetIDs and passwords. Arrangements for wireless Internet access for guests attending your meeting can be arranged at the time of your booking.
