Wherever you are in the library, you can send us a noise complaint if others are disturbing your study. Send an email or text message to email@example.com or use the form below. We will send someone to respond right away.
We have study spaces with noise levels ranging from complete silence to lots of conversational noise:
Floor 1, 2, 4: Quiet Study Areas
This is quiet space. You're permitted to talk at a very low level as long as it's kept to a minimum.
Floor 3, 5: Silent Study Areas
These are 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.
Floor 2 Common Areas
The Library Services Desk, Library service points, and Page Break are common areas. Conversational noise is allowed but shouldn't interfere with nearby Quiet Areas.
Floor 4 Group Study Areas
On floor 4, the Library has 9 Group Study Rooms with tables, power outlets, and whiteboards. Please keep conversation at a modest level. Group study rooms are not soundproof and are surrounded by Quiet Study Areas. The entire Discovery Centre is a group study area.
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.
