If you like a good amount of background noise, there are some areas in the library that get a lot of traffic and are rarely, if ever, completely quiet. These areas include the library foyer and the computer stations on the main floor.
We also have "considerate study" areas. These areas are somewhat, but not completely, quiet. This is because they are adjacent to staff offices or otherwise have features that keep them from being very quiet. Some are downstairs...
...and some are on the main floor.
We also have some group study rooms. These are good if you know you'll be working with others on a project or studying together with conversation. But remember these rooms are not sound-proof, so keep your neighbors in mind!
It's also handy to remember that these rooms are first-come, first-serve. But please don't 'camp out' in them all day, because other people will want to use them, too!
We also have "quiet study" areas. These are the places to use if you really need a quiet space to study, and you know that you won't be talking to anyone else while you're studying.
Bonus: Did you know that students can use the Library Instruction Room to study when there is no class currently being taught? It's a great, quiet place to study and there are 19 computers and 3 whiteboards!
