Construction Update and Scheduled Closures

Renovation of the first floor level continues on schedule and we will be moving upstairs the weekend of October 18-19. Toward that end, the law library will CLOSE on Friday, October 17 at 3pm and will remain closed all weekend. Monday morning, October 20, we will open at 7:30am with the new entrance on the first floor. We are all very excited about the new space, and you will love the new reading room! Reference, Open Reserve, California practice materials and staff offices will be re-located to the first floor.

The PLAZA LEVEL will then be CLOSED from October 17 at 3pm until the beginning of the spring semester. The plaza level will be renovated with new carpeting, shelving, additional study carrels space, two additional group study rooms, and a renovated computer lab. We will move the most-used California materials to the first floor during this time, but please be aware that California case reporters and legislative materials will be in storage for approximately 8 weeks. We will help you find necessary documents online or from another source if needed.

The BASEMENT LEVEL remains open during this time, and will be accessible via the stairwell or elevator.

Thank you for your patience during this time of construction. The noise will soon be over and forgotten as you study in our fresh, new areas.

US State and City Administrative Codes

Code City links to US state and city administrative codes. Most are safety, building and energy codes. A great resource if you need the New Mexico Building Code, for example.

Saturday & Sunday, October 18-19: We will be CLOSED ALL DAY.
Monday, October 20: The new entrance to the Law Library will be open on the first floor!

Please ask if you have any questions. Thank you.
