Plan ahead, Knights! This Thursday, September 3, the John C. Hitt Library will close at 3:00 p.m. The Curriculum Materials Center, in the College of Education and Human Performance, will close at noon. The Library at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management will close at noon. Regional campus libraries will remain open for regular Thursday hours.The UCF Knights will take on the FIU Golden Panthers in Bright House Stadium. Kickoff is at 6.00 p.m. Classes end at noon, so you will have time to get to the library for some study and research before you head out for a little tailgating. Go Knights! Charge on!
Yesterday afternoon, Tuesday 8/25, the John C. Hitt Library was evacuated, at around 1.15 p.m. The building reopened to all over one hour later. The first floor was reopened to all a few hours later. Thankfully, this was not a major event, but the Orlando Sentinel ran a story about it. Thanks to all the students who efficiently evacuated the building, allowing the fire and safety crews to inspect and investigate without interference or interruption. And thanks to those crews who keep us safe. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Come on in today, Knights: we’re open until 1.00 a.m.!
Group study rooms can now be reserved for up to four hours at a time! Rooms are available for currently enrolled UCF students. General study rooms are not locked, but if you do not reserve the room, you will be asked to leave if another group makes a reservation. More information about group study rooms in the UCF Libraries can be found on the Circulation Services page.
