At the request of the Student Government Association, the main and science libraries will extend their closing time by two hours on weekdays to give students more opportunity to study in the libraries. The new hours went into effect Nov. 1.
The libraries close at 2 a.m. on Sunday through Thursday. Previously they closed at midnight. Closing hours will continue to be 9 p.m. on Friday and 7 p.m. on Saturday.
The chair of the SGA Academic Committee, and the SGA president and vice president, requested the extended hours on behalf of all students, according to Provost Arnett C. Mace Jr.
“This request was based on the need for additional study areas for UGA students, and given that this is part of our mission to enhance academic rigor, we are happy to make arrangements for these extended hours,” Mace said.
