Food & Beverages Guidelines

These guidelines are based on the University of Manitoba Libraries Food & Beverages Policy (see http://libguides.lib.umanitoba.ca/policies/foodbeverages).

The Management Library staff want you to be comfortable while studying and working in our beautiful space. We also want to ensure that all library patrons are able to study in a clean and welcoming environment. We understand that sometimes food and drink play a role in studying and learning. In order to keep our space beautiful, please observe the following guidelines.

Allowed in the Management Library:

  • Snacks. Cold or packaged. Please avoid snacks that make a mess, and make sure to clean up after yourself.
  • Drinks. In a closed container please.

NOT allowed in the Management Library:

  • Hot food (pizza, poutine, pad thai, etc.) Why? It produces odours that can disturb others. Hot food tends to be messy, and oils, sauces, and grease can make a mess and cause damage to library property.
  • Meals. Why? A cafeteria or food court atmosphere is not conducive to study and learning. Full meals tend to produce more garbage and more mess.
  • Food deliveries. The UM Libraries Food & Beverage policy prohibits food delivers to the Library.

Please dispose of your garbage and clean up any mess you make!

Financial Data Centre (Bloomberg Lab) and Group Study Rooms.

  • No food. Covered beverages only.
