Cell Phone Policy

Last updated: September 13, 2021

The UCI Libraries is committed to providing an environment that is conducive to study as well as welcoming to all users. These guidelines were developed in response to concerns from students, faculty, and visitors about the increased noise in the Libraries due to cell phone use.

When you enter the Library we ask that you turn off the ringer. Be considerate of those studying around you, and keep your conversations short and your voice lowered when using cell phones. If you need to have an extended conversation, go outside the library to do so. If you leave the library to take a call, please be sure to take your valuable belongings with you.

Please refrain from all conversations in the following locations designated as "Quiet Study Zones":

Langson Library
  • Basement
  • 4th Floor
  • Special Collections
Science Library
  • 4th Floor
  • 6th Floor
