Food and drink in the Library
Can I eat and drink in the Library?
Library users will appreciate the need to keep the library clean and comfortable for others. Covered drinks and some food is permitted in libraries. All rubbish should be placed in bins provided.
Food which smells strongly or results in a mess is permitted only in the cafes and café terraces in Reid Library and Barry J Marshall Library, or the Student Lounge area in the J. Robin Warren Library. You will be asked to relocate from all other Library areas if you are consuming this type of food. You may also be asked to relocate from a Library Silent Study Zone if the food you are consuming is creating noise.
- No food or drink is permitted in the Library’s Special Collections.
- Alcohol is not permitted in any areas of the Libraries (including the cafes and café terraces).
General and recycling bins can be found in all libraries and cleaning products are available from library staff if required.
