Stairway Access to/from the Library

Public Safety has completed installation of a new card reader at the East Newton Street emergency door. Whenever library staff are scheduled to sit at the L-12 Emergency Door (East Newton Street side), students may walk the stairs to L-11 or L-14 restrooms (or any L-building floor). Library staff will check bags before opening the door. Library staff will also be able to let students into the Library from the emergency stairwell: please knock for access.

Please do NOT attempt to use the emergency exit if there is no library staff member to open it for you: it is still alarmed.

We apologize for the longer than usual elevator wait times as the middle elevator is designated for the construction team only through December.
