After Hours Access

After Hours Access

As a University of Minnesota Law Student, you have access to the Law Library at all times by using your U Card. To enter the library before or after business hours, please wave your U Card in front of the card reader adjacent to the glass doors at the entrance of the library lobby.

The glass doors at the entrance of the Law Library are the only points of entry and exit for the library. 

Only current students, faculty, and staff of the University of Minnesota Law School may use the Law Library after hours. 

Please keep your U Card with you at all times, as you will need it to enter the Law Library after hours.
