Snell Opens All Floors 24/7

All floors of Snell Library are now open 24 hours a day, seven days a week after much student demand, library officials said. The change began July 5 and was built on the success of keeping the first floor open at all times.

“We want to give students what they need to succeed in their academic careers – and of course we are delighted that students want 24-hour access to the Snell Library building, which complements our suite of online library research tools and resources,” Wil Wakeling, dean of libraries, said in a statement.

Students said they agreed the change was a positive one, and would improve their late-night studying.
“I think it’s really great that [Snell Library] is open 24 hours now, because I don’t have to listen to people Skype [on the first floor] at 2 a.m. when I’m trying to pull an all nighter,” said Tasha Manesis, a middler biochemistry major.

The library is only open to students and faculty after hours, for security purposes.
