Food and Drink Policy
Law Library
The University of British Columbia Library
For pdf version: Food & Drink Policy.

Please help us preserve the Law Library’s collections and space for future generations of students, scholars, and community users.


The Law Library is a food-free zone. Consumption of food (including candy & snacks) is not permitted in any public space in the Law Library. Please use the café or other locations in Allard Hall or on campus for consuming food.

Beverages may be consumed from spill-proof or screw-top containers in any public space in the Law Library. Open beverage containers are not acceptable. Law Library employees reserve the right to determine whether a beverage item or container is acceptable.

Library users who do not comply with the Food & Drink Policy may be asked to store their food or beverage container out of sight (e.g., in a bag or backpack), discard their food or beverage container, or leave the Library.


This policy was developed to help preserve library materials and equipment, maintain a pest-free space and damage-free furnishings, reduce litter, and ensure a clean, comfortable, and welcoming environment for research and learning.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with this policy.
