Fresh Mudd at last: North campus library reopens

Eighteen months after the popular north campus location closed, Seeley G. Mudd Library reopened today, Sept. 19, to the acclaim — and relief — of students.

The library, long a busy study and work space for science and engineering students, was part of a major renovation of the building to accommodate new physics and astronomy laboratories. Though Mudd Library now only occupies the second floor of the building, its footprint expanded and has seating and work space comparable to its old configuration.

The new library space has also added a dedicated laboratory for Geographic Information System consulting; open computer stations; study carrels and group study rooms; two classrooms; and a maker space (a technology workspace that includes cutting-edge tools like 3D printers), which will open in winter 2018.

The renovated building, which added three floors of offices above the library for Computer Science and other departments, is still connected to the Technological Institute by an enclosed skywalk, and now connects directly to Cook Hall.

During the academic year, it will be open all hours from 10 a.m. on Sunday until midnight on Friday; Saturday 10 a.m. to midnight.
