Collaboration Rooms may be reserved by submitting a 24-hour advance reservation online or by visiting the Service Center in person. Nine rooms, each accommodating up to eight people, are located on KSL's third floor and lower level.

Overnight loans will be distributed in the last hour of Regular Business Hours and will be due back by opening the next day. Access is for one group, per room, per overnight and keys are expected to be returned throughout the night to the Service Center desk.*
