Student-Funded Library Resources: Student-Funded Library Resources

These resources are funded through UW-L's Academic Initiatives Oversight Committee.

Expanded Hours

Students have consistently requested longer hours, especially later weeknight hours and expanded weekend hours. Thanks to Academic Initiatives, the library was able to address this need by adding 11 evening and weekend hours per week to its schedule of open hours.

The expanded open times will be in effect every week during the regular semester, not including holidays and semester breaks.

New library hours are as follows:

  • Sunday: 11:00 a.m.– 1:00 a.m.

  • Monday –Thursday: 7:30 a.m. - 1:00 a.m.

  • Friday: 7:30 a.m.- 8:00 p.m.

  • Saturday: 10:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.

Please note that these are general building hours and do not reflect hours for all departments within the library.

For a complete list of hours, including holidays, special hours, semester breaks, and specific library departments, please visit the complete Library Hours page.
