Policies

SECURITY

Law Library security can be found in the atrium of the Law Library off of the main entrance.  They are available whenever the Law Library is physically open.  Campus police are available 24/7 in Houston Hall.  

For the safety of the HUSL community, all staff, faculty, and students will be required to provide ID upon entering the Law Library and must sign in at the security station. 

HOURS

The Howard University School of Law campus, including the Law Library, is restricted to current HUSL students, faculty, and staff. Excluding holidays and university closures (listed below), and following official D.C. government guidelines, the Law Library will be physically open to the Howard Law community Monday - Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm ET.  For current HUSL students that would like to study on campus, please confirm that a seat is available using the new Seats Reservation System.  To familiarize yourself with the physical library space, a virtual tour of the library can be found here.

All community members may direct their questions to our centralized email: reference@law.howard.edu.

Excluding holidays and university-wide closures, the Law Library will be open Monday - Friday from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm ET until further notice.  If you'd like to study on campus, please confirm that a seat is available using the new Seats Reservation System.  We also encourage students to confirm our hours before making the trip to campus through our website, Twitter, Facebook, and/or Google maps

FOOD AND BEVERAGES

Eating is not permitted in the Law Library.  During this time, drinking (even in containers with resealable lids or bottles with caps) are prohibited in the Law Library until further notice as they would require removing face masks, which is expressly prohibited in the campus safety guidelines provided by Howard University.  Students are encouraged to enjoy their meals and drinks outside.  

SHARED SPACE
