Food in Library not permitted

The Library in MetaForum building has become a popular place to study among students as well as staff. The number of visitors is still on the rise, and unfortunately this also leads to some discomfort. Keeping the Library tidy is proving a particular challenge as some visitors see the Library also as a restaurant.

Consultation among the GOM cleaning firm, the TU/e Internal Affairs Department and the Information Expertise Center has led to the decision no longer to allow visitors to have food in the Library as from 1 September. Having beverages remains permitted. Right outside of the Library there will still be plenty of space for having meals: in the MetaForum restaurant and at several spots on the first floor. We hope this change of rule will make it easier to keep the Library tidy and make sure it stays a pleasant place to study.
