Food and Drink Policies
Zief Law Library wants to provide all patrons with a comfortable and welcoming study environment.
Library users who consume food or drinks in the law library must do so in a manner that maintains a clean, safe library and that minimizes the risk of damage to library books, equipment and other property.
We allow beverage consumption in the law library so long as beverages are in containers with tops, lids, or caps.
We allow "judicious” food consumption in the library. Please use good judgment and be respectful and considerate of other patrons when consuming food in the library. Patrons may not consume hot, noisy, smelly, or messy foods in any area of the law library; such items should be taken to the Kendrick student lounge. The law library staff reserves the right to require that a patron consume food outside of the library if that patron’s food consumption is disturbing the study environment for other library patrons. Failure to comply may result in loss of library privileges or other disciplinary action.
Please discard all wrappers and empty containers, clean up after yourself, and report any food or beverage spills to library staff so that we can alert our maintenance crews.
Consumption of tobacco products is prohibited in the Zief Law Library in compliance with the provisions of Section 6404.5 of the California Labor Code and the San Francisco Municipal Health Code (Article 19, A through E). Patrons of the law library should be aware that USF has instituted a new campus-wide smoking policy, which allows smoking in two designated areas of the campus only. This policy applies to the law school.
