We will be closed Thursday, November 24 and Friday, November 25 for the Thanksgiving holiday. Chat reference will not be available on November 24 or 25. The library will re-open on Saturday, November 26 at 10:00 a.m. Building hours remain normal for the rest of the weekend.

24/7 Library During Dead Week and Finals

The PSU Library’s 24/7 schedule will begin on Monday, November 28 at 7:30 a.m. and last through Thursday, December 8 at midnight. These hours run from the beginning of Dead Week through Finals.

The Library will be open to anyone until midnight. Only PSU students, faculty, and staff may be in the Library after midnight. Enter the Library after midnight by scanning your white PSU ID Card at the card reader by the ADA-accessible door. If you only have a PSU OneCard, please visit ID Card Services in Neuberger for your Student ID/Access Card.

At any time, Campus Public Safety will provide a safety escort to your vehicle or dorm. Ask the Officer in the Library or call Dispatch at (503) 725-4407 for a safety escort. College Housing Northwest (CHN) also offers extended hours for their Goose Hollow Shuttle during the 24/7 Library service.

Extra Library staff will assist you during the extended hours. Room 160 on the first floor will be opened up to provide an additional study room for students. Branford’s Bean coffee shop is also open longer, and they will continue their tradition of leaving coffee out for students after they close.
