Ready for Fall 2019 Finals? We are! Let Us Help You #StudyStrong!

December 9, 2019

Finals week is no joke. The UW-Madison Libraries have seen it all.

Sleeping under the tables, yep. Pizza boxes stacked to the height of doorways, check. Students we’re not sure have left the library in 3 days, double-check.

We’ve seen it all so we can help you through it all; study, relax, and conquer finals with UW-Madison Libraries. #StudyStrong

Follow @UWMadLibraries on Twitter and Facebook for the latest details on food, events, study tips, and a little comic relief…and coffee. We always find a way to get you coffee.

Our spaces may have extended or altered hours for Fall Finals – For all library hours, please visit our website.

If you’ll be studying late, you can request a SAFEwalk by calling or texting 608-262-5000. SAFEwalkers are available to walk with you throughout campus and near-campus locations!
