Better access during busier weeks of session
UOW’s Wollongong Campus Library will open to students and staff for extended hours from 3 October to 15 November (Week 10 to end of exam period).
We will open from 8 am until midnight every day of the week during key study weeks to give you access to the Library when you need it most.
We listened to feedback that you value Library space and services, and you want to use the Library for longer especially when final assessments are due and in the lead up to the exam period.
Feedback shows that you want to access the Library earlier on the weekends and our overnight data shows that people use the Wollongong Campus Library most between 8 pm and midnight – this data informed decisions of how long and when to extend our hours.
During this period, alumni and guests are eligible to access the Library between 8 am and 10 pm Monday - Friday and 8 am and 8 pm Saturday and Sunday.
- Library open 8 am 'til midnight seven days a week
- Library staff on hand to help you 'til 10 pm weeknights, and 8 pm on weekends
- Aligned to busiest session dates (Week 10 to end of exams)
- Ground Floor access including kitchenette, computers and printing
- Security on-site for your safety (bring your student/staff card for ID)
Safety and security after dark
UOW Security will be on-site to ensure your safety and wellbeing. UOW Security provide after dark safety escorts from the Library to motor vehicles and bus stops either on Wollongong campus or Northfields Avenue.
After dark safety escorts can be requested via the SafeZone app, which all students and staff are encouraged to download in case of an emergency.
