McMaster Library is there for you as we enter exam season. Innis, Mills, and Thode Library all offer options for late-night studying, so you have a place to go whenever you have the urge to study. Remember, we have learning zones for the different kinds of studying you need to do, including quiet and silent areas in each library. Read on to find out what your options are for each library.

Thode Library

  • Thode Library will be open 24/7 from December 7th to December 21st

  • The Reactor Café will be open December 7th-21st from 10am to 11:30pm. 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. In addition there is a small Silent Study room on the lower level.

Mills Library 

  • Mills moves 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 until December 21st.

  • 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 or use the online form 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.
