Friendly Reminder to Respect Spaces

Also, please note, as you use the various spaces, both in Brooklyn and Washington Square, please respect the space and treat it as if it is your own.  As a member of the community, we hope that you make sure to keep all spaces clean for the next person to use. During high peak study times, respecting the space allows for all students to be in a safe and comfortable environment. Our hope is that we all do our part in making sure all our public spaces are kept tidy.

The spaces are mostly first come, first serve.  However, if you can make room for a classmate at the table or share a common area, please be courteous.
