wholefood.gif Please help us to preserve your library and collections for future generations of scholars.


You may not eat in any public space in the UBC Library, except if it is specifically designated.

You may drink from spillproof plastic bottles or closed, spillproof travel mugs, except in Special Collection areas. No other drink containers are allowed.


The UBC Library is committed to providing information in a learning environment that meets the intellectual and physical needs of users who are frequently in the library for extended periods of time. The Library developed its Food and Drink policy to preserve library collections and equipment, to maintain pest-free buildings and damage-free furnishings, to reduce litter, and to ensure a clean environment for studying and working.


Library staff will ask those who do not respect this policy to comply with it, or to leave the Library. Please store, out of sight, any food and drinks intended for later consumption elsewhere. Non-cooperation may result in suspension of library privileges and/or academic discipline.
