Event in Williams 5th Floor Atrium on Thursday Evening

Williams 5th Floor atrium, when not hosting events

The Williams 5th Floor atrium is a quiet, comfortable space for students. Occasionally it is used for special events hosted by Georgetown Law.

There is a dinner event in the atrium lounge on the fifth floor of the E.B. Williams library from about 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. on Thursday, February 25th. There will be some noise, including light background music, so please be mindful when choosing a study space on Thursday night.

Looking for a space with comfy seats? Check out the student lounge on the third floor (past the computer lab) or the sofas inside the central entrance on the fourth floor.

If you are in the library on Thursday evening and the music seems like too much, please let the staff at the circulation desk know.

Extended Library Hours and Access Restrictions During Exams

Georgetown Law Library’s reading and exam period will be in effect Monday Dec. 2 and run through Saturday Dec. 21. As you go over course outlines, continue writing papers and prepare for exams, rest assured: we’re open extra hours for Georgetown student study.



During the reading and exam period, the Williams Library will remain open 24 hours daily, and Wolff International Library will continue to close at midnight.

For the benefit of Georgetown students studying for exams, only Georgetown University students, faculty, staff, alumni, members of the Friends of the Library program and public patron card holders will be admitted through the end of exams. Students from other law schools will not be admitted during this time.

Details about Circulation Desk and Reference Desk availability can be found on our Library Hours Calendar.

Williams Reading Room

The Library has arranged to have some of the Williams Reading Room tables and the Reference Desk refinished. The work will be done on June 14th, 16th and the 17th (Monday, Wednesday and Thursday)

The project involves sanding and staining the furniture.

You may want to find alternative study space during these days.
