Accessing the Library


  • The Business Library is located in Grainger Hall in the Learning Commons. All Grainger Hall main entrances have power operated doors, with a gentle slope or ramp leading to the entrance.
  • To access the Business Library, we recommend entering Grainger Hall via the North entrance on University Avenue (street level entrance), or via the entrance at the corner of University Ave and North Park St. (ramp leads to doors).
  • Once inside Grainger Hall, you can enter the Learning Commons via a power operated door for the Huber Lab and Finance and Analytics Lab (1210A-P), then take the elevator inside the lab up to the 2nd floor.
  • Alternatively, you can take any Grainger Hall elevator up to the second floor. While the doors to the Library on the 2nd floor are not power operated, they are open whenever the Business Library is open.
