24-hour Study Space

24-hour Study Space Policies

  • Only currently enrolled MUW students may access the 24 hour study space. Allowing anyone else to access the space is considered a violation of this policy and will be grounds for termination of access privileges.
  • Occupants may be asked to show their MUW student ID card to security personnel patrolling the premises.
  • The space is monitored by video surveillance. 
  • The space is available for use 24 hours per day; except during closures for holidays, semester breaks, and other situations as deemed necessary by MUW administration.
  • ALL occupants will be asked to exit the library and/or café when it is closing. Only registered users may re-enter after regular hours.
  • During hours when the café is open later than the library, all patrons will be asked to either exit the library or move into the café / 24-hour study space.  Once the café closes, all patrons must exit the building.  Only registered users may re-enter the building’s 24-hour study space with their activated ID cards. This area is monitored by MUW Police Department and actively monitored video surveillance.
  • This space is for study use only. No scheduled meetings, events, or other functions may be held.  All student organization events must go through the Office of Student Life.
  • Personal belongings should not be left unattended in the Library at any time; the Library is not responsible for patrons’ personal belongings.

  • Enjoy your food and beverages, but do so responsibly so the spaces are clean and pest-free. Dispose of trash and recyclables in appropriate containers and clean spills, crumbs and sticky surfaces immediately.
  • Food delivery personnel are not permitted to enter the building.  Food delivery is not permitted during café hours.
  • Registered users are expected to respect other patrons, the library staff, and the library space, as well as maintain appropriate professional behavior throughout the time they are in the library.
