5th Floor Study Space Closed

5th floor study space will be closed during spring semester for the construction of a new quiet study space. 5th floor library offices and Special Collections and University Archives will remain open, accessible by the south staircase and the bank of three elevators. 4th floor will remain in use as a quiet study floor.

The 4th floor bathroom on the Student Union side of the building is getting closer to completion, but remains closed as construction continues. The noise, dust, and inconvenience will make way for exciting, new spaces for student research, group work, and study.
