The University Libraries recently completed renovation of a new 24/7 study room that will give students unlimited accessibility after the main library is closed. The After Hours Study Space is a joint initiative funded between the Libraries and the Office of the Provost in response to students' long-expressed need for a safe study and work space that is available during overnight hours.
"Students had expressed their concerns about limited accessibility to the main library after regular business hours, especially during peak periods for exams and research projects. The biggest challenge for the University was offering a space that was comfortable, yet safe and efficient enough that allowed for adequate resources while also providing security to all who use it in the late evenings and early mornings," states Dean of University Libraries John Buschman. "Now there is a room on campus where students can work whenever they wish that is comfortable and secure without disruptions. We are extremely happy that we are now able to officially open our doors 24/7 to Seton Hall students as a viable resource according to their academic needs," he continues.
The After Hours Study Space is on the library's second floor and has been configured to be adjacent to Dunkin' Donuts, which also offers 24 hour service five days per week. Access to the space during the library's overnight hours is limited to current Seton Hall students only through an ID card swipe equipped door located on the walkway. During regular operating hours the space is accessible only from within the library through the designated wooden door.
Overnight hours are as follows:
- 2 a.m. – 8 a.m. Monday through Thursday
- Midnight Friday through 11 a.m. Saturday
- 7 p.m. Saturday through 11 a.m. Sunday
