- Libraries & Spaces
We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.
The library has several lounges for undergraduate and graduate students. These areas are available for use whenever the library is open. If group study rooms are not available, there are tables in the lounges where discussions can take place.
Most of the second floor is also a study lounge. The Midnight Mug is located here, and the second floor is the only location in the library where food is allowed.
Only those with a current Georgetown University ID are allowed in Lauinger library between 11:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m.
For quieter spaces, please also see the specifically designated Quiet Study Areas.
