Courtesy & Behavior Policy

Quiet Study Areas

Each Libraries location reserves certain areas for quiet study and others for group study. Please respect others' needs for quiet while in quiet study areas. If you are working with a group, please reserve a group study room or find an area where conversations won't disturb others. Please also note that we do not designate areas near Libraries service desks as quiet study areas, as staff may need to hold conversations and use equipment.

Mobile Devices

Please do not make or receive telephone or video calls in study areas. Each Libraries location has designated areas where you can make or receive calls without disturbing others. Please ask at the Reference Desk or Circulation Desk for more information.

Food and Drink Policy

Drinks and small snacks (such as chips or fruit) are permissible in most areas. Drinks must be in spill-proof containers, such as bottles with lids or travel mugs. Meals are not permissible in any part of the library.

  • Examples of permissible food: candy, bagels, dried fruit, and granola bars.
  • Examples of non-permissible food: pizza, sandwiches, hamburgers, fries, salads, ice cream, subs, or any other messy foods.

Food of any kind is not permissible in the Reading Rooms at Cudahy Library and Lewis Library, although beverages in appropriate containers are permissible.

Neither food nor beverages are permissible in the University Archives and Special Collections or the Women and Leadership Archives.
