Please note, this post pertains to the 2012 hours reduction. Currently library hours can be found on the hours calendar .
Dear Campus Community,
In response to recent University budget cuts, the library has reduced its operating hours. The library will no longer be open 24 hours 5 days a week, and hours will be slightly reduced on Fridays and Saturdays.
In order to provide overnight study space and wireless access, the Atrium/Cyber Cafe area will remain open Sunday-Thursday nights between 2 AM and 7:30 AM. There are some computers available in this area, and to help ensure safety of students, a security guard will be on duty. Entry will require an Appcard.
At the library, we know that being open 24 hours 5 days a week has been popular with students, and understand this cutback is a disappointment. However, a 16% budget reduction has forced the University to make difficult choices. The library remains dedicated to providing the highest level of research support and services possible.
The typical schedule of library hours will be:
Sun: 12:30 PM - 2 AM
Mon-Th: 7:30 AM - 2 AM
Fri: 7:30 AM - 6 PM
Sat: Noon - 6 PM
(Exceptions to these hours during holidays and breaks are posted on the library hours calendar ).
