Late Night Studying in the Libraries

Submitted by pottier on Filed under Library News:  Alerts

This year you have lots of options when it comes to late night studying during exams.

Thode Library will be open 24/7 from December 2nd to December 18th.    The Reactor Café will be open 10am to 10m, from December 4th to December 15th, then until 8pm until the end of the exam period. We have introduced an ATM to Thode so you will have easy access to cash for use at the café and the vending machines.

The lower level of Thode is the Quietest Study Area in the building, with the 2nd floor designated as Quiet but more difficult to enforce due to noise floating upwards from the 1st floor. We are working to resolve this issue, but unfortunately will not have a solution in place before this set of exams. 

Mills Library will move to extended hours next week – the main library will be open 8am to 10:45pm, 7 days per week. 

The Mills Learning Commons (2nd floor) will be open 24/7 from December 2nd to December 18th. The food and beverage vending machines on this floor will be stocked daily during exams.

A reminder: The 6th floor of Mills is designated as a Silent Study Area and we will do our best to patrol this area.  Feel free to send an email to quiet@mcmaster.ca if students in the area are not respecting the Silent Study guidelines (no talking, no socializing, no cell phones, no music). A large area on the  4th floor is  designated as a Quiet Study Area.  During exams, all seating areas on the upper floors (3rd – 5th) are considered Quiet Study Areas and will be signed as such.

Innis will also move to extended hours next week – Monday to Friday 8:30am to 10:45pm / Saturday 10:30am to 5:45 pm / Sunday 1pm to 7:45pm. 

You will find  more information on the various study spaces available in our libraries here.

All libraries have bookable Group Study Rooms.  Please remember that these are to be used by groups of 2 or more, and cannot be booked for more than 2 consecutive hours by one group. The library reserves the right to remove bookings which do not follow these guidelines.

Good luck on your exams!
