Policies and Procedures
The primary purpose of the Graduate Commons (GC) is to provide an environment for graduate students to be productive and work. Students using the GC should work quietly, refrain from talking, and avoid disrupting their colleagues.
The GC is self-monitored so anyone disrupting the work of others may be asked by their colleagues to cease activity or leave. Additionally, there is a surveillance camera in the room monitored by campus security. For reporting concerns related to the room, please call the IUPUI Graduate Office at 317-274-1577 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do not leave personal belongings unattended in the GC. Report any threatening behavior to campus police at 317-274-7911.
Call 911 or campus police at 317-274-7911 for all emergencies. When the fire alarms in the commons or the library are activated, occupants must leave the building. During severe weather events, follow directives of library staff to seek shelter. For an escort on campus at night contact Safewalk at 317-274-7233 for campus police assistance.
The GC is for graduate student use and entry requires a valid IUPUI CrimsonCard.
Exceptions to access include librarians and staff. Those using the space must not provide access to unauthorized users. The GC is open for use when the library is open. See hours at the top of page. Please pack your things, clean up after yourself, and proceed to the exit 15 minutes prior to the library closing.
The GC video technology is set by default to display the time/weather/alerts and should not be altered in any way. If you wish to use a computer or other electronic devices in the GC, please bring your own as the GC is not outfitted with any workstations.
Bringing food into the GC is prohibited. Covered beverages are permitted in the space. All GC users must clean up after themselves in the room to ensure the space is maintained. Please discard beverage/food waste in the University Library trash receptacles outside of the GC room. Please report concerns related to the maintenance and upkeep of the room to email@example.com. For room maintenance concerns after 5 p.m. contact the University Library staff on the 4th floor.
