I’M TRYING TO STUDY FOR EXAMS AND ONE IS BLASTING MUSIC FROM AN IPOD AND THE OTHER IS TALKING AT FULL VOLUME ON A PHONE AND THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME! EVEN IF THEY AREN’T DOING WORK THEY NEED TO AT LEAST RESPECT THAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO WORK! CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL THEM TO SHUT THE HELL UP BECAUSE PAM AIN’T INTERESTED!

The 4th floor is ridiculously loud all the time. Please make it clearer it is a silent zone, and perhaps consider having staff regularly come up and inform people if they're being too loud. This isn't the standard one would expect of a postgraduate degree. Its loud and distracting and impossible to do work. Really really disappointing.

cleaners finish before opening

It would be more conducive to study if cleaners were to finish cleaning before the library opened. Instead of having to hear them banging around with their bins and trolleys whilst trying to study.

Quiet zone on first floor

It's gotten to the point where the half-hourly reminders over the PA that "this floor is for quiet study, not collaborative study" are more disruptive than the students who are actually speaking. Not to mention the staff member who walks around and threatens these students that he is going to call security to kick them out - speaks at the top of his lungs. Seriously, first floor is nowhere near as loud as ground floor, and if people studying want silence they can use the quiet study room or go upstairs!

Noise levels in teaching room 2

There is a group of delinquents being obnoxiously loud and disrespectful in teaching room 2. They are constantly laughing and talking even though it is a silent zone.

Library Quietness Disturbed by Group Tables on First Floor

Hello,

The tables on the first floor seem to encourage groups of students who want to chat while they study. Naturally, they ought to be in the collaborative zone or cafes around the campus. It would be appreciated if perhaps there was better signage posted at these tables to remind students that this zone is a quiet zone and these tables are inappropriate for group study. Or otherwise other methods to discourage group work done at these tables.
