Welcome New Students: Food, Drink, & Study Space

Each of our campus libraries have unique spaces and student needs. Our policies reflect these needs, which is why every campus library is a little bit different! 

Richmond campus library

The computer lab and north-east corner of Richmond campus library are Quiet Study areas. If you are not sure where the areas are, please ask any Library employee. Click here for a floor map.

New for January 2018: Covered drinks are allowed, but please eat outside of the library. There is an eating area just across the hall! 

Langley campus library

The computer lab and south side area of the Langley campus library are designated Quiet Study areas. Please click here for a floor map. 

Covered drinks and small snack foods are allowed at this location.  Please make sure to clean up your recyclables and trash, crumbs attract bugs that like to eat books! 

Surrey campus library

Because the Surrey campus library is so large, we have designated zones based on student study needs. You can choose to sit in a red zone for silence, a yellow zone for quiet, or a green zone for discussion. Covered drinks are permitted in the library, but please eat in the food zone at the library's entrance.
