Pence Law Library regularly polices noise in the library. The library is designed so that as you ascend the floors and walk further away from the stairs, the library gets quieter. The first floor is intended to be a more collaborative space with study tables and computer work stations. Quieter study spaces are available on the upper floors of the Law Library. Collaborative spaces are available in the Commons on the Terrace level and also on the Second and Third floors near the stairs. Single study carrels are also available on the Second and Third Floors of the library. The reading room and other locations throughout the library have designated "Silent Tables" for quiet study as well.
There are 24 group study rooms located on the 2nd & 3rd floors of the library and on the Terrace level in the commons for use by WCL students. The following policies apply:
Collaborative spaces are available to encourage group study and social students. These areas are generally near the top of the stairs on the Second and Third floors of the library. In addition, the Commons area is intended to be a collaborative environment. There are also a number of other spaces throughout the campus that offer a similar study setting, including the Knowledge Bars on the Terrace and 1st floors of Yuma and Warren as well as the Library Lobby in the Warren building. Groups might also consider reserving a study room.
