The Library is intended as a place of quiet study. On floors 4-10, we expect individual quiet study, with the 10th floor designated as a silent study floor.
Low level discussion will be permitted in the group study rooms on those floors – due to lack of soundproofing, the level of group discussion must be respectful of the “absolute quiet” culture of the floors as a whole.
During regular patrols, Library staff and/or Security Guards will speak to users who are found making excessive noise
Users who encounter unacceptable noise levels should direct their complaints to a patrolling Library staff member, Security Guard, or to a service desk on the 2nd floor.
Users who refuse to be quiet will be issued warnings to comply with the Library’s expectations around quiet study – after three warnings and continued refusal to comply, they will be asked to leave the Library.
Security will be called to assist in eviction should that be necessary.
In the case of students who fail to comply with the rules when requested, a report will be made to the Director of Student Services who is responsible for the Student Code of Conduct.
