Food and Drink Policy

Fogler Library is dedicated to providing a welcoming study and research environment. This policy was established to balance the needs of library patrons with protecting the building and its collections.

Covered beverage containers are permitted in the Library except for Special Collections. Preferred containers include screw/pull-top bottles and spill-proof travel mugs but covered paper and styrofoam cups are permitted. Travel mugs are a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to paper and styrofoam cups.

Open beverage containers are permitted only in the Oakes Room Café and University Club. When in doubt, ask about the acceptability of a container. You may leave this type of container at entrance check-out desks.

Food is only permitted in the Oakes Room Café and University Club. You may leave food at entrance check-out desks.

Smokeless tobacco prohibited.

Thank you for helping to protect Fogler Library and its collections.
