Noise policy

Technology & Information Services at Plymouth University has a policy allowing users to hold discussions within its libraries, media workshops and open access computing areas. The noise policy seeks to create a variety of study environments to meet the needs of all our users.

Such a policy is required in order to protect those wishing to study quietly or silently, whilst allowing group discussion, social interaction and use of TIS facilities (PCs, media equipment, Primo, Enquiry Desks etc). Consideration should be shown to others, especially in open plan areas where different types of study space are not divided by separate rooms.

We will designate and advertise certain areas for different types of study, as space and buildings permit. Further information can be found in the document attached below.

Noise Text Alert Service

If an area within the Library is too noisy, users can text their location to 07772 444789 for a staff member to investigate. Locations are detailed on signs around the library. This service runs between 8:30 – 18:00. Outside of these hours users can speak to staff at the Information Desk on level 1.
