Q. Are the Library’s buildings currently open?


All campus libraries are closed to patrons except for the Regenstein Library pickup area until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The University of Chicago Library is providing online services while our buildings are closed to help with your teaching, research, and learning. We also began offering Paging & Pickup, Scan & Deliver, and UChicago Card services beginning June 15.

Patrons permanently leaving the University may register for a 30-minute time slot to return Library materials. Those who are staying in Chicago over the summer or returning in the fall are encouraged to keep the material loaned to you until the fall. 

Please check our Library Hours page for the most recent information about hours of operation for online chat.
