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 4 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.
The hours that have been added due to student funding are:
Sunday: 11:00 a.m.– midnight
Monday –Thursday: 7:30 a.m. - midnight
Friday: 7:30 a.m.- 7:00 p.m.
Saturday: 10:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m.
Please note that these are general building hours and do not reflect hours for all departments within the library.
