Card Access: Swipe to Study

This guide outlines the library's policy regarding building access after 8 pm.


In an effort to increase campus safety and security, Seattle University will be implementing a new policy. Effective February 1, 2019, late-evening access to the Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons building will be reserved exclusively for current SU students, faculty, and staff with a valid SU Campus Card.

At 8pm Sunday through Thursday, outer doors to the building will lock, and students, faculty and staff will need to swipe a valid SU Campus Card in order to enter. This policy does not apply on Fridays and Saturdays when the library closes before 8pm, and will not impact the 24/7 spaces.

Building and all service hours for Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons will stay the same.
