The library is intended to be a quiet study area for patrons. Throughout the building, visitors should not speak above a reasonable indoor speaking volume. All students and visitors are asked to be respectful and be considerate of others at all times.

Each floor has designated noise level:

  • Lower Level – Moderate Noise: low volume talking and group work are permitted
  • First Floor – Moderate Noise: low volume talking and group work are permitted
  • Second Floor – Silent: no talking permitted; individual study permitted
  • Third Floor – Quiet: whispering and individual study permitted

There are group study rooms available on the First, Second and Third Floors, where moderate noise is permitted.

The Mud Box Café does not have restrictions on noise.

Ear plugs are available at the Information Desk. If you observe a noise policy violation, please contact the Information Desk.
