The University of Kansas Libraries
Extended hours and free refreshments for night owls at Watson and Anschutz during finals
Updated Dec 9, 2012
Finals week, although at the same time every year, always manages to sneak up on us. As long days turn into long nights of little sleep, students need a place to refuel, relax and—of course—study. KU Libraries can help ensure a stable study environment for the time-consuming week.
Both Watson and Anschutz Libraries have extended their hours to meet student needs during this hectic period.
Watson will remain open until 3 a.m. on weekdays and until 10 p.m. on weekends.
Anschutz is open 24 hours a day from 10 am, Dec. 4 through 5 pm, Dec. 16. for 24-hour study, with extended checkout services until midnight on all nights.
Spahr Engineering Library is open noon Sundays through 8 pm Fridays as a 24-hour study facility while classes are in session.
Along with the extended hours, Anschutz and Watson will offer free coffee and hot chocolate each night between 10:30 and 11 pm on Sunday, Dec. 11 through Thursday, Dec. 15.
The Hawk Food Stops in Anschutz, Watson and Spahr will also have extended hours during finals; for details, visit www.union.ku.edu/schedules.shtml .
