Where are the Quiet Study Areas in the Library?

While the entire second floor of the Library is designated a Quiet Zone, some areas are less quiet than others.


The study areas in the front of the building are supposed to be Very Quiet, while light conversation is allowed in the rest of the upstairs (whispers, etc.).  In addition, Group Study Rooms, contrary to popular belief, are not soundproofed, and sometimes conversations from these spaces become louder than students realize.

Regardless of the reason, if you experience a noisy situation, please notify staff at either the Reference or Lending Service desks and we will address the issue at that time (see contact options to the right, or stop by either desk).

On the other hand, if you are working with a friend and know that you'll be making noise, the Friends Room on the first floor is a place where students may eat and chat. The first floor of the building is also an area where conversation is allowed.
