Use of the Library Commons

The Library Commons is used by different groups for different purposes – some studying individually and some working in groups. If you are seeking a silent study area we would recommend trying:

  • coming back at quieter times
  • using noise cancelling headphones
  • our bookable meeting rooms
  • other areas in the TAMUQ building
  • other libraries that may be more suited to silent study.
Should you believe others in the Library Commons are being excessively noisy or disruptive then in the first instance please approach and discuss with the other party or parties. If you have already asked someone to be quiet and they continue to be disruptive then this may be a violation of the Student Conduct Code (Section on Disruptive Activity). In such cases you can file a Campus Community Incident Report. If you would like help with this process please ask Library staff for their assistance.
