Exams and UCD Library

28 April 2017 | General

Revision Week is upon us, and with exams beginning Monday, May 8th, we would like to draw your attention to our extended opening hours and a few Library study tips.

Opening Hours Information

Opening hours for all five of our locations have been extended in the run-up to exams. The James Joyce Library is now open from 7.00 til 24.00 (midnight) Monday through Friday until May 19th. Weekend opening hours are 09.00 - 21.00 both Saturday and Sunday. Hours for our other locations vary so please check our Opening Hours webpage for full details. 

Library Study Tips and Etiquette

During this busy season please be considerate of your fellow students when using library study spaces. Study spaces are at a premium at this time of year and it's important to give everyone a chance at finding a space in each of our libraries. Please don't leave your study space for extended periods of time (more than 45 minutes). We have once again launched a promotional campaign to tackle this issue.
