Quiet & Silent Study Areas

Quiet & Silent study space: the 3rd & 4th floors

While the first and second floors of Snell Library are for group study and have no noise restrictions, the third floor is designated for QUIET study and the 4th floor is SILENT.

Please do not talk on the phone in the stairwell, as well, please take all calls downstairs. Laptop locks are available for checkout at the first floor Help & Information Desk if you need to leave your computer.

Quiet Study: 3rd floor

Quiet study means whispered conversation only. No loud group meetings or phone/skype conversations, please.

Silent Study: 4th floor

Silent study means no noise at all: no talking, nothing.


To report a disturbance, you can use the library's text messaging service to reach someone at the main Help & Information desk. Text 66746 with the word "Husky" and then your message, and please include your location.
