Noise in the Library

Looking for a quiet space? Or a space for a group?

The Research Commons on the first floor is typically a noisy space with lots of foot traffic, but a very popular one for students who like to study in a dynamic environment close to the coffee bar and InfoDesk.
  • Macs and PCs
  • Tables and armchairs
  • Two alcoves

The Courtyard and the Periodicals Reading Room are adjacent to the Research Commons, each with seating/table options.

The second and third floors of the library are designated quiet floors.
  • Group study rooms
  • Study carrels
  • Couches and armchairs
  • Alcoves (3rd floor only)

Study rooms are first come, first serve, and groups of 2+ students have priority for their use. 

WiFi is available throughout the building, and all over campus.
