Policies applicable to the entire Library space – as found in the Library Use and Conduct Policy – also apply to all study rooms and workstations. Study room windows should remain uncovered and keep noise to a minimum; there is no soundproofing.

If items are not removed during the maintenance period, the lock will be removed and the contents will be sent to UTSW Security Lost and Found, contact: (214) 648-8311.
