Thanks for your message. The only area where laptops are prohibited is in the Silent Study room on the 3rd floor of Mills. We plan on making the signage for this room stronger and will do our best to respond to complaints about noise in this room.
We have also created several laptop friendly areas - the large area on the main floor across from the Service Desk, on the 2nd floor in the Research Help area and a separate room on the 3rd floor - where there are lots of outlets and tabales or counter spaces perfect for using laptops!
