Regarding: Individual Study Rooms in Noble Library
Comment: It would be nice if the students are allowed to speak over calls in single study rooms. It is difficult to go out and speak over call in order to clarify doubts with fellow students, it would be good even if few rooms are provided with this feature.
Response: We understand that it can be frustrating to have to move away from your study room in order to talk on the phone, even if the phone call is pertaining to your work. The reason that we ask you to do so, however, is out of respect for the students in the rooms next door. The walls of these rooms are very thin, and your neighbors can hear you talking on the phone, and that is disruptive to their studying. Unfortunately, we aren't able to improve the sound-proofing between these rooms, so we will continue to ask you to make phone calls in the areas of the library that are zoned for conversations.
