Cell phone, food, and drink policies

Cell phones

  • We ask that you turn your cellphone 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 areas.
  • 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

  • Per Cal Poly’s requirement, all students, employees and visitors must wear a face covering when inside Kennedy Library (Bldg. 35), regardless of their vaccination status.
  • Food and beverages are permitted. Masks may be removed only when actively eating and/or drinking.
  • Eating is recommended in outdoor spaces including the terraces and the atrium.
