If you visit Morris Library this summer, you will notice a few construction projects underway. When completed, they will bring about exciting updates and renovations, but in the meantime, they will result in additional noise and limited access to certain parts of Morris Library.
Here’s a rundown of the renovations happening in and around Morris Library this summer and how they may impact you:
The graduate student carrel area on the third floor of Morris Library will be renovated this summer, limiting access to that space until the renovation is complete. The renovated area will feature new furniture, lighting and carpet; additional individual study spaces; and eight new group study rooms.
Bleecker Street, the bistro in the Library Commons, will close at the end of the spring semester. Following a major renovation and rebranding, the eatery will re-open as “The Nest.” Due to this renovation, the Library Commons will be closed this summer.
Film and Video Collection
Due to the remodeling project in the Library Commons, the Film and Video Collection, which is located directly beneath the Library Commons on the Lower Level, will have periods of limited access and closure during the summer. Stay tuned to our Twitter account for updates on when.
The University’s South Green Infrastructure project will continue this summer with work on the steam line that runs in front of Morris Library’s steps. This may impact pedestrian access and the parking lot closest to the library.
