Weldon Law Building Temporarily Closed
Update as of December 2, 2021.
It is anticipated that construction will be complete by the end of March. We are currently making plans to schedule classrooms out of the building for the entire winter semester. Our highest priority is getting our first and second floor classrooms up and running as soon as possible. We hope that we will be able to move back into the building gradually during the semester and as construction allows. We will keep you informed as new information becomes available.
Update as of November 26, 2021.
The Sir James Dunn Law Library will be open on Monday, November 29th. The Student Lounge will also be available to students, and we are working with Aramark to see if the Brief Break is able to open until the end of classes. If you are coming in, please use the Henry St. entrance as much as possible. The University Ave. entrance will be available by card access only and the Edward St. entrance will not be available, except for the construction crews.
The elevator closest to Henry St. will be available for general use.
We will continue to update you as more information becomes available.
Update as of November 25, 2021.
The Sir James Dunn Law Library will re-open on Monday, November 29th. We will provide further information about access in the coming days.
Update as of November 23, 2021.
It looks like there will be full access to the law library by Monday, November 29. This remains a priority for the law school. There will be a staged approach to re-occupancy of the building. New details will be shared as they become available. Students should continue to check their email in the coming days for more detailed instructions on exams.
Update as of November 22, 2021.
At this point, it appears that the Weldon Law Building will be closed at least until the end of the week. Opening up the library for student access as soon as possible is a priority for the law school. We will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available.
Update as of November 21, 2021.
The Weldon Law Building will be closed until at least Thursday (November 25) due to water damage from a malfunctioning sprinkler on the fourth floor.
There was no fire, and nobody was hurt. There also appears to be little to no damage in the Sir James Dunn Law Library. There is, however, water damage on multiple floors of the building. Clean-up crews are working to determine the extent of the damage and when it will be safe for everyone to return.
Students, faculty and staff should check their email for more detailed instructions regarding classes and operations.
