Seat Availability

The Library will close for study space reservations from June 12-20. During that time, the pickup and mailing service at the Main Library will be available on Tuesday, June 15 from 1-4 pm and Friday, June 18 from 9 am to noon.

When the Library reopens on June 21, seat reservations for open study space will no longer be required. Visitors will still need to provide a UCSB Access Card to enter the building via the Mountain Entrance as well as a green clearance badge. Face masks must continue to be worn. 

Individual private study rooms, as well as the Adaptive Technology Center, will continue to require use of the reservation system.

We do not yet have a date for when the full building will be open.
