Quiet Areas and Phones: Quiet Areas & Phones

Policies concerning noise, cell phone use, and quiet areas

Cell Phones

Be considerate of others. We recommend that you set your cell phone to silent mode rather than ring. If you must answer or initiate a call, please move to the stairwells or outside the lobby doors.

Quiet Areas

Designated Quiet Areas

 

Noise must be kept to a minimum in the:

  • main reading room
  • main level study carrels (by the North windows), and
  • the downstairs study rooms.

 


General Study Spaces:

Haddad Conference Room

Conversations may be held at moderate level, and group study is acceptable. Please be considerate of others.

Group Study Rooms (upstairs)
Conversations may be held at moderate level, and group study is acceptable. Please be considerate of others.

Bishop Quarter Room

Please be considerate of those around you when studying in the BQR space. Occasional conversation in a low tone is acceptable. If someone asks you to be quiet, and you must continue working in an active group setting, please consider moving to the Haddad Conference Room or one of the upstairs Group Study Rooms.

 


Phone Conversations
Do not hold phone conversations in the main library space; move to the outside lobby for extended phone or person-to-person conversations.


 

If Noise is a Problem

If you are being disturbed in an area designated as a quiet zone, remind that person that the area is intended for quiet study. If this does not resolve the problem, contact a library staff member.
