To foster an inclusive environment that is conducive to studying, we ask library users to follow these policies:

  • Feel free to have food and drinks in covered containers in most areas (see Food Free Zones, also listed below)
  • Avoid foods that might be disruptive or create an unpleasant experience for others (e.g., foods that are strong-smelling or that generate noise), especially in Absolute Quiet Zones
  • Throw away all trash, and clean up after yourself when you leave your study spot

Note that the following spaces are food-free:

  • Bostock Library’s Carpenter Reading Room and adjacent tower reading room (covered drinks are allowed)
  • Rubenstein Library's Gothic Reading Room (covered drinks are allowed)
  • Rubenstein Library’s Reading Room and classrooms (no food or drinks)
  • Music Library (covered drinks are allowed)
