  • Study Rooms are intended for collaborative study; they are not for meetings, tutoring, classes, or other non-study uses.

Issues: Noise and Cleaning

  • Keep conversations and videos/sounds to a respectful level.

  • If a group is too loud, you can ask them to be quiet OR let the staff at the Library Services Desk know. Call us at (314) 446-8361.

  • Student Honor Code stipulates that quiet should be maintained in the Library because it is a designated study area.

  2. If the individual/group continues to be loud after a warning from Library Staff, Public Safety will be summoned to handle the disturbance.

Erase all notes from the whiteboards
  • The rooms are for all students, so we ask that you erase any writing from the whiteboards. The housekeeping staff will erase all notes and clean the whiteboards each night. 

Be considerate and clean
  • Throw away all trash and double-check that you have not left anything behind.
