Libraries' hours posting

You said:  Please post larger font for Library hours postings.

Irma says:  We've enlarged the posting on the Connector door.  The small panes on the College Avenue entrance makes it hard to enlarge.  Please note that we always post holiday hours and other changes on white boards at both entrances as you see in the picture.  Also, the hours are always online.

Previous exams on file


You asked: "We'd like old exams on file to help us study.:"

Irma says:  Some professors put sample or previous exams on reserve at the Check Out Desk.  Others will post them in Blackboard or Canvas.  The best thing is to ask your professor if she/he will provide a sample exam.

Free Parking during 24/5

You asked:  Is there still free parking for 24/5?

Irma says:  Yes!  UNCG students using Jackson Library's 24/5 service may park for free in the Walker Avenue Deck. Here are the details:

  • Enter any entrance of the Walker Deck after 10 p.m. and pull a deck entry ticket.
  • When you leave the library after 12 am but before 7 am, pick up your free parking voucher at the Check Out Desk. Each voucher may be redeemed for one free exit from the Walker deck between the hours of 12 midnight and 7 a.m.
  • Exit between 12 midnight and 7 am at the cashier window on level 3.  Give your deck entry ticket and parking voucher to the cashier and your parking is free.
