Extended Study Begins December 5th

The Monroe Library’s Extended Study Hours begin this Friday, December 5th. The library will be open continuously starting Friday, December 5th at 7:30 AM and will close Tuesday, December 16th at midnight.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • Starting at midnight each night, the library will be open only to members of the Loyola community. Please be sure bring a valid Loyola ID in order to enter the building. The front doors will be locked, so use the side entrance near the computer lab wing to access the building.
  • Free coffee and tea will be served starting at midnight!
  • Group study rooms cannot be renewed if there are people on the waiting list.
  • Help us make the library conducive to all types of studying: the first floor is great for group study; the second floor is meant for quiet study (whispers only!); and the third floor is reserved for silent study.

This is the first semester we’ll be open continuously for eleven nights straight! (That’s right, we’re even open on Friday and Saturday night.) Love it? Hate it? “Meh” about it? Let us know what you think via our suggestion box.
