So that everyone can get the most out of our library spaces, we ask that you respect our policies.

Food & Drink

Food and drink are permitted in the libraries, but we ask you to be respectful of others by cleaning up after yourself and avoiding food with strong odors.

Unattended Belongings

Do not leave personal items unattended in the library. Campus Security will remove and hold on to unattended items.

Noise Levels

Observe signs about the noise level for each space and be respectful of others’ need to concentrate in silent study areas. Library staff will ask you to adjust your volume or move to a conversation zone if we receive complaints.


Library staff reserve the right to ask any person causing any disturbance to leave the library. We will call Campus Security or the local police department to deal with incidences of vandalism, theft, acts of violence, or threatening or abusive behavior.

Study Rooms

Both libraries have private and group study rooms available for use on a first-come-first-served basis. Learn more about using library study rooms.
