The Sweet Sounds of... Silence!

We know the Library is loud.  You've told us.  And you've told us what you need is a SILENT place to study.  And we heard you, loud and clear (ha!).

Alexandria Campus Library's silent study rooms are here, are open, and ready to use!

The Upper Level of the Library is designated as the "Quiet Level" (think golf tournament or tennis match whispering).  Just off the quiet level you will find the silent study rooms.

Please be considerate of your fellow students.  Be silent in the silent rooms.  Be quiet in the quiet area.

There is plenty of group study space available on the Library's main level, in the Academic Success Center (room 229) or in ANY open classroom.
