Order and peace
The MLC is a learning environment for group learning. Therefore it is not a silence area like parts of the library. Yet it is required that order and peace are observed, to enable other visitors to work. Mobile phones are permitted, but are not to cause inconvenience (vibrate alarm instead of ringtone). Portable audio players and the like are only to be used at a non-disturbing sound level.
It is not permitted to move chairs from a room (for instance from a classroom to the group work area).
Supervisory and security staff can request visitors, causing inconvenience because of their behavior, to abide by the house rule for order and peace. They are entitled to summon disturbers of the peace to leave the MLC. They are authorized as well to temporarily deny access to troublesome visitors. This will always be confirmed in writing.
Use of the MLC computers
The use of the computer facilities should be in the line of the education of Tilburg University. Therefore games, porn and the like are forbidden. Separate facilities are provided for games, chatting or just surfing on the web, such as the internet cafes in the Cobbenhagen building, Prisma building and Dante building. Following rules apply to the use of computers:
- In case of reserved computers in a classroom, other users should shut down the computers and leave the classroom at least 5 minutes before the booked time.
