Soliciting at SFU Library

Q. hi,

i’ve been studying in the library on the fifth floor (burnaby campus) two days in a row and around noon till 2pm there is a deaf guy (100% sure he’s not a student) selling deaf cards. he would wonder around the fifth floor put a deaf card on each study cubicle and leaves then make a trip back to collect the money. i feel extremely uncomfortable and think most students probably feel the same way but just doesn’t bring this to the library’s attention. i suggest that a sfu security to wonder around the library to secure student’s safety/possession.


A. There are a number of these individuals who show up every semester and this particular one was escorted out of the Library and off campus by Campus Security. They usually appear at the beginning of semesters. On occasion we do ask Security to patrol the area but it is not the most effective use of their time as the building is large and Security does not have the personnel to sweep more than one floor at a time.

Campus Security is called right away whenever these solicitors are in the building and they do respond immediately.
