Designated Quiet Zone Policy

The Atkins Library has several areas designated as Quiet Zones for quiet study. In response to student feedback, another floor has been added as a quiet study area - the 3rd floor. The 1st and 2nd floors remain areas that facilitate collaborative study with quiet talking (except for the Dale Halton Room).  Just look for the QZ sign in the following locations:

  • Ground Floor - Compact Shelving Area Only

  • 1st Floor - The Halton Reading Room Only

  • Floors 3, 5, 6 and 7

  • Floor 8 - Large Quiet Study Room.

Quiet Zones are meant for quiet study and no cell phone calls or talking are allowed.  Please report any violations to the Security Office on the 1st floor or phone Security at 704.687.1120.
