About the renovation

The University Libraries are undertaking a $10M transformation to build a collaborative space that preserves and enhances the traditional aspects of the library while also creating a more modern, engaging and flexible space to meet the needs of university scholars and library patrons alike.

For questions about the building and how users will be impacted by the renovation, please contact Jaleh Fazelian.

To donate to the project, please contact Sharon Fenoglio.

Access to Level 5

Study rooms will close on May 22, 2023 for the University Libraries renovation project. Please use the open study areas on Levels 1, 2, or 3 for group and individual study. Level 4 will remain the quiet floor. 

All open study tables and chairs will be removed from Level 5 by May 30, 2023, as we prepare for renovation.

We appreciate your patience during the construction.
