24 Hour Study Space
The ground floor of the library remains accessible as a study space 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for Harvard Law School students. The computer lab, Fishman Room, and Lemann Lounge will all be available 24 hours until the end of the academic year. All other floors of Langdell and Lewis will continue to close at normal hours.
To enter the ground floor after midnight you will need your Law HUID. Swipe access is available from the two outside doors in the back of Langdell, where the building connects to Areeda Hall. After entering through either of these doors, you must swipe your card once more to enter the library. The outside entrance on the Holmes Field side of Langdell will not be available.
After midnight, there will be security guards but no staff or services. For safety, please do not swipe anyone else into the library with your HUID. Report any suspicious activity immediately to HUPD 617-495-1212. Do not leave your belongings unattended.
Please remember, if you arrive early in the morning you still need to use your HUID at the Langdell/Areeda entrance. The entrance on the Holmes Field side will open with Circulation services. Services begin at 8 a.m. Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. on Saturdays, and 9 a.m. on Sundays. The other floors of Langdell and Lewis (International Legal Studies) open at those times.
