To maximize the ability of students to study in the library, whatever their needs may be. This policy recognizes that some students will need very quiet study areas while other students need spaces where they can interact, collaborate and study in groups.
Guidelines for the Entire Building
Open Study Zone : First and Second Floors
Group work is encouraged but loud conversations are discouraged. Cell phones are only allowed in stairwells, landings, and lobby areas.
Group Study Zone : Second and Third Floor Group Study Rooms
Group work and use of media is encouraged but should be kept at a low enough volume that it cannot be heard outside the room or in the next room. Cell phones are allowed.
Quiet Study Zone : Third Floor General Areas
Voices should be kept at a low whisper and any other noise kept at very low levels. Cell phones are not allowed. Groups in transit to and from study rooms should respect that this is a quiet floor.
Silent Study Zone : Third Foor Reading Room
This room should be completely silent. Use of audible devices, talking, eating, and cell phones are prohibited in this room.

Land Acknowledgment: The University of Washington Bothell & Cascadia College Campus Library occupies Land that has been inhabited by Indigenous Peoples since time immemorial. Specifically, this campus is located on Sammamish Land from which settler colonists forcibly removed Coast Salish Peoples to reservations in the mid-19th century. Today, descendants of the Sammamish are members of several Coast Salish communities.
