Where are the quiet study areas in the library?
Does the library have an open collaborative space? What is the library's noise policy? Where can I use my cell phone in the library?
The library has designated different areas of the library as either Quiet Zones, Community Zones, or Collaborative Zones. The Law Library’s Noise Zones page provides an overview of the different zones. These designations include our Open Collaborative Area located on the 1st Floor, which includes a mix of tables, standing desks, soft seating, and rolling whiteboards. No advance registration is needed to use the Open Collaborative Area. The group study rooms adjacent to the open collaborative space are also available as first come, first serve.
You can reserve a study room on the 3rd, 4th, or 5th floors using the Study Space Booking System. The study space and seating capacity in the library may change in response to changes to the university's health and safety policies.
Though the noise zones were developed in response to law students' suggestions, the Law Library staff is unable to enforce the noise zone policies.
