Guidelines on eating and drinking in the Library

The Library recognizes that many students wish to eat and drink while whilst studying in the building. We also recognize that the maintenance of a clean and pleasant learning environment is important to those who use our facilities.

Food and drink are only allowed in the library under the following rules

• Hot food is not allowed in the library past the gates/turnstiles

• Cold snacks are allowed

• Hot and cold drinks in secure reusable containers are allowed. We encourage students to be environmentally-friendly by carrying re-useable cups for hot drinks or reusable water bottles for water to limit unnecessary waste.

• You must take care not to disturb others when eating or drinking, particularly in terms of noise and smell

• You are not allowed to drink alcohol in the library

• Please dispose of waste appropriately and clean up any messes

No food or drinks of any kind are allowed in Archives and Special Collections, the Appellate Moot Court or The Library Boardroom

Please note interpretation of these guidelines is at the discretion of Library staff. If, in the opinion of any member of our staff, you are observed to be consuming a non-permitted food item within the library you may be asked to discard the food, store it out of sight (e.g. in a bag or rucksack) or leave the Library.
