We’re open until 2 a.m. during final exams!

Need more study time?

To serve our students, Archer Library will remain open until 2 a.m. from Sunday, December 8 to Friday, December 20, 2019.

Access from 11 p.m. – 2 a.m. will be to the main floor only, with 400 seats available. Services will be limited. Community Assistants will be monitoring the front door, refilling paper trays and performing seat counts.

Students are allowed to park in any M and Z lots after 5 pm (other than spots for persons with disabilities). It is recommended that students park in Lots 14 and 15 after 10 pm as access will remain open to the AdHum and Language Institute buildings after 11 p.m. for students utilizing nearby parking or returning to residences.  Students will also be able to move from the Archer Library through the Classroom and Lab hallways up to the Campus Security office in order to access parking on that side of campus.

University Food Services has committed to keeping the Lab Café Tim’s open until 10 p.m. during final exams from Monday to Friday. Don’t want to leave the Library? Visit the Lavazza Coffee machine located on the Library main floor in the Archer Alcove for coffee, specialty coffees and hot chocolate.

Food for Fines

Once again the Dr. John Archer Library and the libraries of the federated colleges will be forgiving fines in exchange for food donations. For every food item you bring in, we will forgive $2 in fines, up to a maximum of $30. Donations made to Archer, Luther, and Campion will go to the URSU Cares Pantry; donations made to First Nations University will go to their own in-house student pantry.

There are a few important things to note before donating:

– Donated items must be non-perishable.

– Fine forgiveness applies only to overdue fines, not fines for lost or damaged items.

– Donations must be taken to the library that the fine is attached to.

Even if you don’t have fines, we will happily accept your donations!

The program runs from now until December 16th.
