Student Learning Center to open for 24 hours on trial basis for fall semester

The Student Learning Center has joined Snelling Dining Commons in offering students 24-hour access. On Sept. 17, areas of the SLC will remain open from Sunday at 11 a.m. through Friday at 7 p.m. on a trial basis for the fall semester. The SLC will continue the regular schedule for Saturday.

“Students have expressed their desire to increase the Student Learning Center hours to provide unlimited access to this valuable campus resource. We believe this access is valuable to increase the academic goals and success of our students,” said Provost Arnett C. Mace Jr.

The second, third and fourth floors of the east wing (stadium side) of the SLC, which include individual and group study areas, computer workstations and vending facilities, will remain open during the extended hours. Entry and exit after 2 a.m. is limited to the colonnade entrance on the east side of the second floor.

Building use, maintenance and costs associated with the extended schedule will be evaluated to determine the operating schedule for spring semester.
