This includes refraining from loud talking, cell phone use, or any other loud behavior. Please respect your fellow student's desire for quiet study space. Study rooms are available for groups that need to collaborate. Otherwise, please save any conversations for outside of the Center. This policy pertains to all areas of the Center, including all three floors of the library and the Service Center desk.
