UNIVERSITY CENTER OPEN 24 HOURS A DAY FOR SPRING 2015 SEMESTER

UNIVERSITY CENTER OPEN 24 HOURS A DAY FOR SPRING 2015 SEMESTER
This time last year, The New School unveiled its new University Center, a building with state-of-the-art facilities designed to promote creative innovation, collaboration, intensive learning, and public discourse. We are pleased to announce a new pilot program that will keep the University Center open 24 hours a day starting this semester. This schedule will further expand opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to collaborate, practice, and study.

During these extended hours, the New School community will have access to practice rooms, studios, and study space, including the library, where support staff will offer laptop and material checkout. A printing station is located on the fifth floor, and to-go food options are available near the cafeteria space on the second floor. Beginning in late March, when construction is completed, all students and faculty will have 24-hour access to the Event Café space and computer labs on the lower level of the building. Until then, these computer labs will be open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.

The University Center will be open 24 hours daily starting Monday, January 26. Below are guidelines relating to the University Center’s 24-hour schedule from the Campus Safety department.

  • Students, faculty, and staff must scan their New School ID cards when entering the University Center.
  • During overnight hours, starting at 11:00 p.m., only New School–credentialed individuals are allowed access to the University Center. An exception will be made for students of Consortium-approved schools, who will be granted access to the library with proper ID.
  • All students, faculty, and staff should secure their personal property at all times. Do not leave it unattended.
  • If you need assistance, notify Campus Safety personnel, who will be on-site in the University Center.

Although the University Center will be open 24/7, certain areas of the building will close on a rotational basis for cleaning. Please visit the following webpage for a complete list of areas and the times they will be closed: www.newschool.edu/about/building-hours/university-center/#Temporary_Hours. During spring break (Monday, March 23Friday, March 29), the University Center will continue to be open 24 hours. For university holidays, the building will operate on a modified schedule.
