We know that some people come to the library for a quiet place to study, while others need space to work on group projects. We've designated study spaces to accommodate both.
- Floor 3, 5 – Silent Study
- Floor 1, 2, 4 – Quiet study
- Library foyer on the main floor – conversational noise
Wherever you are in the library, you can let us know about issues that prevent you from studying effectively. Send an email or text message to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the Quiet, Please form. We will send someone to respond right away.
Silent Study Areas
Floors 3 and 5 offer silent, individual study spaces for people who need to concentrate. Talking is not permitted, and neither are audible personal audio devices. Please move to the stairwell for even short conversations.
Quiet Study Areas
Floors 1, 2, and 4 provide quiet space for people. You're permitted to talk at a very low level as long as it's kept to a minimum.
The Library foyer and Research Support Services on floor 2 are common areas. Conversational noise is allowed but shouldn't interfere with nearby Quiet Areas.
Group Study Areas
The Library has a number of group study rooms on floors 4 and 5 with tables, power outlets, and many with whiteboards. Please keep conversation at a modest level. Group study rooms are not soundproof and are surrounded by Quiet or Silent Study Areas.
Cell Phones and Electronic Devices
Please set cell phones to ring silently when you enter the library. Use cell phones only in quiet study areas (floors 1, 2, and 4) or in stairwells. Silent texting is allowed throughout the library. Computers and audio devices should be used with headphones and at low volume.
