Updated Library Hours and Access Policies

Please note that as of August 25 our Law Library space will be open on a limited basis due to the COVID-19 emergency. We are open to current Loyola Law students on Tuesdays from 10:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m. and Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Only the 3rd floor lobby area will be accessible, and only for picking up books and for printing. The 4th and 5th floors of the Law Library, including study rooms, will not be accessible. However, current Loyola Law students will continue to have remote access to many Law Library resources. To learn about remote access to e-books, online study aids, and electronic resources go to


Loyola University Chicago School of Law welcomes all Loyola students during regular access hours (see information on "restricted access" periods below). The library is proud to offer a wide range of services and resources to support our students' legal research.

If you have a reference question, please contact one of our Reference Librarians by phone at (312) 915-7205, by e-mail at, or in person at the Reference Desk (Law Library, 3rd floor).

Law Library Hours

All current Loyola students are permitted to use the Law Library unless we are on "restricted access."  Restricted access hours occur in the weeks immediately preceding and during Law School exams. Of the student body, only current Law students and Paralegal students may use the library during these periods to ensure they have the most complete access to our spaces and resources as they study.
