No canned beverages or open cups are allowed.
Food is allowed throughout the building, but please be considerate of the space and students around you. Always clean up any food and food waste. Food and food residues, such as oil and sugar, destroy or damage computer equipment, disks, books, equipment, and furnishings. If you spill or see a spill, please notify a staff member as soon as possible. Thank you for helping to preserve your resources.
Problems such as damage from spills, excessive trash, etc. will result in reconsideration of this policy.
Food and drink items from Ed's Cafe may be eaten in the library.
