Cell phone, food, and drink policies

Cell phones

  • We ask that you turn your cell-phone ringers down or off when spending time in the library.
  • Please be considerate of other library users and if possible move your conversations into a corridor, balcony, or other non-study area.
  • Following these guidelines is especially important to students working in the quiet study zones — the 4th and 5th floors, and other areas as designated.

Food and drink

  • You are welcome to bring your drink and food into the library, with the exception of Special Collections and Archives (room 409).
  • Please note that you’re asked to keep your food and drink away from computers.
  • Please be considerate in disposing of containers, wrappers, and bottles (recycling encouraged!).
  • Please avoid consuming messy or strong-smelling food in the library since this can disturb other library users.
