Food Policy

UNB Libraries has many welcoming and comfortable spaces that encourage learning, study and academic pursuits. We recognize that food and drink support academic processes, and can help to create more hospitable and pleasant environments. However, there are certain areas where food and drink can potentially damage expensive materials and equipment. We have outlined below the areas in our libraries where food is both permitted, and not permitted.
