Library Etiquette

BPP University aims to keep rules to a minimum while ensuring that as many facilities as possible are available to all our users. You can help us to ensure the library remains a quiet place conducive to study by following some simple guidelines. 

Carry your student card Respect quiet zones No food or drink Take care of books and equipment Don't be a desk hog

Always carry your student ID card and be prepared to show it on request.

Be considerate of other library users, hold conversations elsewhere and respect silent zones. Turn off, or put in silent mode, any mobile phones before entering the library and take calls outside.  

Do not bring food into the library, use the break-out areas to eat.

Drinks in lidded containers are allowed.

 

Remember to keep your drinks in sealed containers and please take care around books and IT equipment.

Don't be a desk hog, take your belongings with you when you go to class.
