MacMillan Law Library Extended Hours
Today marks the first day of the Law Library's extended exam hours which will be in effect through the end of final exams. Library hours will be as follows: 
Monday-Thursday: 7:30 a.m.-2: 00 a.m.
Friday: 7:30 a.m.-12: 00 a.m.

Please make sure to have your student ID handy to swipe in! During this period of extended hours, the library prohibits access to undergraduate students and public patrons to preserve our space for you, our law students. If you do not have your ID, our staff is required to look your up in our system to verify your law student status. Please be patient with us and help us help you!

Important things to remember as we head towards finals:
  • Our staff work hard to provide a safe, clean and orderly library for you to use, but it's NEVER a good idea to leave valuables unattended or in the library overnight. If you're taking a break, use your locker or bring your bags to the Service Desk - we can watch them while you go to lunch, etc.
  • Be courteous - keep noise levels down, use cell phones only in the stairwells, be kind and respectful to others.
  • If you do have an issue - temperature, mess, etc., come let us know at the Service Desk right away.
