Policies - General

Policies at the FAU Jupiter Campus Library are aligned with the policies of the main campus library in Boca Raton, but with some minor adaptations.

visitors & Guests

Visitors are welcome to use the Jupiter Campus library during regular hours of operation.  Children 17 years of age or younger, unless students in dual enrollment programs with FAU, are not permitted in the library unless supervised by a parent or adult.  We cannot supervise children.

Non-FAU-affiliated guests may use the library online and physical resources onsite, but may not check out materials without presenting one of the following cards to the circulation desk:

  • Palm Beach State College
  • SEFLIN One Card
  • Library cards from other SUS institutions

Active members of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute are given limited borrowing privileges once their active membership in the Institute has been established.

For all other types of borrowing privileges, please refer to the FAU Libraries web site.

Study Rooms & Spaces

The second floor is a designated quiet study area.  Collaborative group work should take place on the first floor or in study rooms.

The library provides 2 study rooms for currently enrolled students to utilize for up to 3 hours at a time. Study rooms may not be reserved. Each study room has a computer and a white board. The Honors College Tutoring Center, when not in use, may be used as a study room. Students must provide a currently activated OWL Card for accessibility.  Study rooms may be renewed once, provided there is no one waiting for a study room.  Rooms may be checked out either by individuals or groups.

The 24/7 lobby area is available for study at any time.  Afterhours access is restricted to students with currently activated Owl Cards.  The adjoining computer lab is also accessible afterhours by card swipe.

Food & Drink

It is preferred that students and visitors eat in the lobby area, but they may bring food and secured drink containers into the library. 

cell phones

Discrete cell phone use is permitted; however, if it becomes distracting to others, you may be asked to continue the call outside the library.
