Late-night hours

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

Thode Library will be open 24/7 from April 10th to April 29th.   The Reactor Café will be open 10am to 10m, from Friday April 12th to Sunday April 29th. Don't forget there is 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 and hope to have a solution in place for this set of exams. Additionally, there is a new small Silent Study area on the lower level.

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

The Mills Learning Commons (2nd floor) is open 24/7 until April 29th.

The entire 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 hoursthis 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.

Food and beverage vending machines in all libraries will be stocked daily during exams.

Good luck on your exams!
