Summer 2021 Hours

May 14, 2021

As part of an effort to ensure library access across campus, several campus libraries are coordinating their summer schedules. College Library has been designated the “evening library” and, as a result, there is a marked change in our traditional summer opening time. Beginning May 17, the library will open at 12 noon Sunday through Friday, close at 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and at 5 p.m. on Fridays. Since Memorial Library is open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., College will be closed that day of the week.

Study spaces and collections within College Library are open to all UW-Madison affiliates.

Given the many adjustments to schedules at campus libraries, please check the libraries’ hours page before setting out.
