THE NEW NORTH ENTRANCE GALLERY IS SCHEDULED TO OPEN ON MONDAY, AUGUST 24TH
We are ready to welcome students and faculty back to campus! The new North Entrance Gallery, 2-story atrium, North Reading Room and skylight mark the beginning of many transformative changes yet to come. Please stop by for a visit and see for yourself as we kick off the fall term.
- The North Entrance Gallery will be accessible using a new sidewalk at the northwest corner of the building. The remaining landscaping and sidewalks in the Hesburgh Library’s North Plaza & Quad will be completed in early September. Download the site logistics plan for the North Plaza and Quad.
- New restrooms are located on both the 1st and 2nd floors.
THE SOUTH ENTRANCE IS SCHEDULED TO CLOSE ON MONDAY, AUGUST 24TH AS PHASE 1-B BEGINS
- Please use the temporary “Fishbowl” Entrance to the west of the main entrance.
- The south entrance will be closed until the completion of Phase 1-B in March 2016.
- The Library Concourse will remain open throughout Phase 1-B.
- The grand staircase and other travel paths will be inaccessible during Phase 1-B. Two stairwells on the north side of the building will provide access between the first floor, second floor, and lower level.
- We will continue to have one elevator closed off for construction use. The other elevators may experience intermittent closures due to construction activity or for repairs.
NAVIGATING NEW TRAVEL PATHS
Onsite: When in the building, look for maps, wayfinding flyers, and directional signage to help with navigation during Phase 1-B.
Online: See Phase 1-B construction maps and other updates online at renovation.library.nd.edu, or download a wayfinding flyer.
CONSTRUCTION MAPS & “REN-ALERTS”
Site logistics and construction maps are available online. They indicate which areas of the library are accessible during the course of the renovation and alternate traffic routes for users. Learn more at renovation.library.nd.edu.
Remember -- we will do our best to alert you to significant increases in construction noise levels whenever possible. Thank you for your patience!
