About the Library's Study Zones

The Library's new Study Zone Policy was enacted in response to student feedback.  While most of the library falls into the Quiet Study Zone, the 1st floor of Library North is now designated a Group Study Zone and most of Level A (Library North) is now the Silent Zone for folks looking for absolute silence when they study.  

  • Conversation allowed but please speak quietly
  • No phone conversations
  • Set phone to vibrate or silent 
  • 1st Floor (Library North)

  • Occasional discussion is OK
  • Speak quietly
  • No phone conversations
  • Set phone to vibrate or silent
  • Headphones at low volume
  • B Level (Library North)
  • 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Floors  (Library North, Palmer Wing & Bridges)


  • Silent study only
  • No talking
  • No phone conversations
  • Set phone to silent mode
  • Headphones at low volume
  • Level A (Library North)    Excluding the Graduate Resource Center Area          


Please respect the rules of each study zone and be mindful of your peers.

While the library staff will do its best to enforce this policy, we need the cooperation of the entire community!

We cannot guarantee perfect silence in the red zone, or constant quiet in the yellow  zone. Sound may carry from study rooms or through doorways and people (like you!) using these areas may generate some gentle noises (keyboard clicks, pages turning, an occasional cough, etc.). Please be patient with these minor interruptions.
