Food in the library
One of the top complaints we get from students (after the "talking in the silent zone" thing, which everybody hates) is about other students eating "smelly" takeaway food like fried chicken or curry. Apparently, it can be rather distracting when you're trying to focus and you can smell someone's KFC two desks down from you.
We have places in and around the library buildings where you can eat without driving your fellow students nuts. If you want to eat something messy or "aromatic", please be kind to your fellow students and take it outside.
This time of semester can be stressful, so please try to remember that the library is a shared space. You're all in this together, so be excellent to each other.
