Food & Drink

AUS Library’s Food & Drink Policy is intended to preserve our library materials, computer equipment, and furnishings, and to maintain a pleasant and comfortable environment for our readers and staff.

We also recognize the University’s commitment to move toward sustainable waste reduction initiatives.

Your help in this effort is greatly appreciated.
