Study Room Guidelines

  • Study rooms are not soundproof.  Please keep your voices low and use headphones for audio.
  • Please don’t sit on the tables.  If you need additional chairs, please see library staff.
  • Covered drinks are permitted, but food is not allowed.
  • Please leave the room as you found it. Put all trash in trash cans and return library books to the library staff for shelving.
  • Large study rooms are intended for use by groups of 2 or more.  Individuals may request the use of a large room with the understanding that they will move to a smaller room if needed by a larger group.
