How do I enter the study zone after library hours?
You can enter the study zone by swiping your student card at the after-hours entrance door 15 minutes after the Library closes. No special registration is required.

If you are using the Fisher 24 hour study zone before the Library closes, you will need to collect your belongings and borrow any items you need before exiting the Library at closing time.

You must keep your student card with you at all times, and follow the instructions of Security staff if directed.

    The 24hrs study zone for Fisher sounds great. However surely a better procedure can be implemented so students aren’t thrown out for 15mins at closing before they re-enter which is what the above procedure suggests. This is particularly painful and perhaps a little dangerous at 10pm on a winters night!

      The requirement for students to exit the Library and re-enter is so that the after-hours area is only available for University of Sydney students. We can consider your feedback, in consultation with University Security staff, in case they can recommend an alternative entry protocol.

    Does this include Saturdays and Sundays?

    So we aren’t even allowed to bring in Significant others into the library? The guard just booted my SO out as she wasn’t part of USyd.

  4. Sarah says:

    Do we have to enter 15 minutes after closing or can we swipe in at any time of the night

    There needs to be better ettiquite for entering the 24hr zone. People literally running past and pushing one another over for a seat is a bit much. Put security on the door and make them enforce the usual social rules of not elbowing someone in the face like they’re a crazed eastern suburbs housewife grabbing at the last zimmerman dress at a djs sale. Alternativley open up the whole floor so there is enough room for everyone.
