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 longer than usual elevator wait times, as the middle elevator is designated for the 13th and 14th floor construction teams and may not always be available.
