TLC Guidelines

 We welcome all current WKU students to utilize TLC space (including the computer lab) for tutoring, studying, and other academically-oriented activities. Please follow the guidelines below in order to keep TLC a quiet, comfortable environment for all.

Sign in/Check Out

 Always sign in to TLC upon your arrival -- and don't forget to sign out when you leave.

No Cell Phone Tolerance

Please turn cell phones OFF (not to silent or vibrate) when entering the Academic Advising & Retention Center and/or The Learning Center. Coming and going to take phone calls, place phone calls, or text messaging is distracting to others and disrespectful to everyone in The Learning Center.

Food and Beverage Policy

Snacks and bottled drinks are allowed in the general TLC area; however, neither are allowed in the computer lab. No full meals are allowed in any TLC area.

Volume Control

Casual conversations should be kept to a minimum and voices should be kept at a library-like level at all times.

Distractions

You may not watch movies, play games, or otherwise entertain yourself with anything but academic work.

Headphone Policy

TLC is an area of academic learning. Students are able to listen to music through use of a laptop computer or tablet device with the aid of headphones. Devices that serve as your phone (iPhone, etc.), MP3 players, and other musical devices are NOT allowed to be used in TLC. While in TLC, all portable devices which play music are prohibited. If the sound or noise from the user or the device becomes distracting to others in the Center, you will be asked to remove the headphones for the duration of your visit. Failure to comply in this request will result in being asked immediately to leave TLC.

Don’t Do It

For the comfort of those around you, sleeping and the use of ANY tobacco products are prohibited in TLC.

Computer Lab

As is the case with all TLC areas, the computer lab is for academic-use only. Surfing, chatting, shopping, gaming, and/or all social networking activities are not acceptable in any TLC area.

Study Hall

If you are here for mandatory study hall, you are welcome to utilize the main TLC table area and the computer lab (for academic use only). Please do not use the small, private tutoring rooms for study hall.
