Noise on the 9th Floor

Students on the 9th floor regularly engage in full volume conversations. According to the study spaces, this floor should not even have whispering happening. It would be helpful for students looking for quite study space to have a library employee who can tour the floors and address issues as they come up regularly. I have not once seen a loud student be asked to quiet down by anyone other than students who have had their studying be interrupted. Students in group study rooms are also extremely loud often. A reminder sign on the floors as well as in the group study rooms may help to remind these students this is still a quiet study space.

Thank you for letting us know about the noise problem on the 9th floor, and for suggesting some things that we can do to improve the study experience on our quiet and silent floors. Noise levels are monitored by Ryerson Security; however, they only roam the library once every few hours. It's an ongoing problem, but we're going to try to implement some of the things you mentioned, such as posting signage in the room and changing up the text on the room booking page. Thank you again for reporting the issue.

  1. Amber, thank you for posting your comment. I'm sorry to hear that this happened, and it is unacceptable. I have forwarded your comment to Security, so that they can investigate more fully and speak to their staff. I will ask that they contact you directly to follow up on your comments.
