Quiet, Food & Drink Policies
The primary mission of the Rensselaer Libraries is to support Rensselaer’s educational and research endeavors. The following policies have been adopted in order to promote this mission and to foster a vibrant intellectual and social collaborative place on campus. We ask that our patrons self-police these policies.
The first and second (main) floors are open, collaborative spaces.
The third and fourth floors provide an environment where discussions should be subdued (particularly outside of enclosed, Group Study Rooms).
Food & Drink
Non-messy snack foods and drinks in closed containers are permissible throughout the library with the exception of the Fixman Archives. Please dispose of waste properly.
Messy foods (e.g. pizza, soup, chili…) and open container drinks should be restricted to the Library Café on the 2nd/main floor of Folsom Library.
