The Learning Common's Code of Conduct is applicable in the study rooms. Please alert staff on the first floor if the study room is not clean when you enter it or if you are disturbed by the conduct of others nearby. Rooms are for group academic activity and are not to be used for personal storage, sleeping, dining or other social activities suited for the Campus Center.

A violation of policies described above will result in loss of study room privileges and possible disciplinary referral. Library staff have the right to enter a reserved group study room to verify compliance with library and college policies.
