Campus services available over holiday break

December 22, 2016 — 

If you are thinking of coming to campus over the holiday break (Dec. 23, 2016 – Jan. 2, 2017), here are some services that will be available, and some things you should keep in mind.

Elizabeth Dafoe Library

To help students complete the Fall Term successfully, the University has decided to keep Elizabeth Dafoe Library open for limited hours over the holiday break.  Students’ success is a high priority, and having library space available for students will give them a place to prepare for January exams.

There will be one librarian and one library assistant available during the days so that students can access help when they need it; in the evenings, the library will serve as a study hall, meaning no library staff will be on site, only security services.  As usual, students can access electronic resources from anywhere, anytime, using their UMnet ID.
