24/7 Study Area

The 24/7 Study Area, located on the 2nd floor of the Library Addition, is a computer lab with group study rooms and a help desk.  Access to this area is restricted to current SDSU students/faculty/staff when the rest of the library is closed (for instance between midnight and 7 am during the week). Security guards will check for SDSU IDs during that time.

Food/Drink Friendly Areas

Library and Information Access appreciates the efforts of all who enter this facility to help maintain the equipment, furniture and collections for the enjoyment of all members of the SDSU community.

We offer three "food/drink friendly" locations to our patrons. For all other public areas of the Library, the consumption of food and drink (other than water in screw top bottles) is not allowed. The following are the "food/drink friendly" locations:

  1. The wireless laptop area in the basement of the Library Addition - the circular space (under the dome) immediately adjacent to the stairwells and the elevators.
  2. The large study lounge on the east side of the third floor, Love Library, between the stacks of Government Publications' materials..
  3. The 24/7 area on the second floor of Library Addition - except for the workstations and study rooms.

Thank you for not eating and drinking in other parts of the Library. You are doing your part to help maintain the Library's facilities so that we may all enjoy this building.
