Stay Late

Two weeks into each semester the library is open until 5:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday. Use your Flyer Card to access the building between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. For the final two week of the semester the library building is open 24 hours a day.

Work Together

The library has many different study spaces that can accommodate noise or group study activity. 

Study Rooms

If you prefer private and quiet study space, we have small study rooms on the fourth, fifth, and sixth floors. Reserve a study room through our online reservation system. 

Check it Out

Roesch Library has open stacks so you can retrieve a book from the shelves on your own. Find the floor, call number and row locations using the library catalog.  We also have a great selection of current fiction in our leisure reading collection, as well as magazines, scholarly journals, newspapers and DVDs.  We even have a selection of e-journals. All circulating materials are checked out at the first floor Services Desk using your Flyer Card.

Study Snacks

If you don't feel like leaving the library, vending machines and a microwave are located in the Refuel Station, first floor. There is the Blend, a coffee shop on the ground floor, where you can also get muffins, cookies, and bagels. Next door, in Keller Hall on the ground floor, is the Jury Box a small cafe. The Blend and the Jury Box are open when classes are in session.
