    I don't like to study in that group tables. They would install more individual chairs. But it is a good place to study and the internet is good.

    I actually like the architecture. Lots of study spaces and you can just study here whoever you are.

    If you don't want to get sick don't come, people coughing all over without caring about others

    if you are in a hurry or don't want deal with the line up or don't particularly need to get Starbucks at Robarts...just go to the one at Athletic Centre, you don't have to wait

    Great library! Has a grand feel to it. Kept very clean and furniture & electronics up to date. Ample study rooms.

    Probably one of the most interesting architectural landmarks in the city, the Robarts Library is great to shoot from any angle. Then, check out their selection of Photography books!

    Don't come here when you're sick... you selfish, ignorant people.

    There is a food court on the 2nd floor! Had no clue.

    Be prepared to be robbed of your arts at the door.

    If you really need it, you should know that Robarts is open 24h for all UofT students with Tcard. Beat my personal record of *26h non stop* (if you care more about your paper than your health) !

    Check out the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library. It was the inspiration for the secret library in Umberto Eco's the Name of the Rose.

    Joe Culpepper · August 8, 2012

    If you're in the study rooms in the stacks, SHUT THE FUCK UP! We can all hear you from outside.

    Kelvin Lee · April 20, 2012
  • Kelvin L.

    When choosing a quiet study area, pick a place away from doors. They are all extremely squeaky and distracting

    Kelvin Lee · April 16, 2012

    Here's a tip: shut up! It's a library. The stacks study rooms are not party rooms. And mobile phones are for mobility: go outside and talk about what he said behind her back 'cause we don't care!

    Darren Donahue · February 3, 2012
  • James C.

    Why are the Dyson hand dryers mounted so high?

    James Chow · December 6, 2011
  • Darren D.

    I love food as much as the next person, but PLEASE don't bring your smelly food into the study areas! The other 30 people don't wanna smell it & there are plenty of places to eat downstairs.

    Darren Donahue · October 17, 2011

    Bathrooms are located on odd number floors, so 1,3,5

    Don't use Skype here, even in the private study rooms. It's a library. We can all hear you!

    Pimp smack people talking loudly on their cell phones.

    Its freezing in here, I just can't win!

    Water fountains seem hard to come by! There's 2 that I use: 1st floor & 3rd floor by the male/female washrooms on both. 2nd floor one is hidden (by payphones/ATM) and useless/undrinkable.

    Gladys · July 18, 2011

    Hefty $250 annual fee for a borrowing card for external researchers regardless of whether you're at another uni or an independent. New policy since the last time I used the library for free.

    Denise · July 12, 2011
  • Francis N.

    Check out the used books for sale in the food court when its open. Cheap way to pad your personal library.

    Worst library I've ever been to! I have never had a good experience here and people are SO unhelpful or just plain stupid!!!!!

    The higher you go, the less reception you have. Make your phone calls on the second and main floors.

    The Asian library on the 8th floor is great

    Reza Fakhteh · October 27, 2010

    Most recently seen styled as a post-apocalyptic prison block in Resident Evil IV: Afterlife. In reality it's slightly more cheerful.

    Christy Zhou · October 2, 2010
  • Steve M.

    Media rooms on the main floor are great for group work (media related or otherwise!). Book them at the print desk.

    Steve Masse · September 30, 2010
  • Steph C.

    Take advantage of the private conversation rooms on the stack floors!

    Won't let you go up to the stacks if you are an undergraduate anywhere other than u of t.

    Zack Silverberg · May 12, 2010
  • Jason S.

    Don't sit by the doors in the reading room. You'll get no reading done. Noisiest doors ever.....

    Don't come to Robarts.

    The Info Commons help desk on the ground floor is the place for all your tech support needs. Just don't ask us about the library.

    Adam W · February 3, 2010

    Imressed with the bathroom remodel... especially the space-aged hand driers

    When you're bored, do a photo shoot. There are a lot of cool things you can find in the stacks.
