Thanks for writing. We’re sorry that your study plans were disrupted when the building was closed on August 1st. We tried to inform students as best we could with blog posts, a banner on our homepage, and signs throughout the building. There was a large sign at the entrance gate, but in the future we will try to make our signs more noticeable.
The day before the closure we closed at our regular time. We don’t want to rush you, but we also must insist that you observe our hours, as we are not set up for 24/7 hours outside of exam period. When our café reopens in the fall, that space will be a dedicated 24/7 area throughout each term.
