The Law School campus is your campus - for studying, socializing, networking - even a game of basketball now and then.

Campus Operations

Campus Operations is comprised of the following departments:

Campus Access

The campus is designed to have a single primary entrance point through the parking structure entrance by the security office in order to maintain the security of our campus and to provide the safest possible environment for our students, faculty and staff.  For convenience, the gates on Olympic and James Wood are equipped with ID card swipe access.  These gates are chained and use is thus prohibited for security reasons as indicated in the schedules below.

Campus Hours

The parking garage gates are open 5:30am to midnight, seven days a week, except during Law School holidays (see the current Academic Calendar).  All visitors must check in with Security before entering campus.  Students, staff, and faculty may use their valid ID card to enter on foot through any of the locked gates during the hours listed below.

Day Open Locked
Monday through Thursday 5:30 am 11:00 pm
Friday 5:30 am 10:00 pm
Saturday 7:00 am 10:00 pm
Sunday 7:00 am 10:45 pm

For the convenience of students studying in the Library late at night, upon completion of their sweep of the library at closing Security will open the James Wood gate one time for any students waiting to exit at that time. The gate will then be immediately re-locked.  Anyone parked on the streets surrounding campus leaving late at night may go to the security office in the parking structure and request a security escort.  Students that normally park on the street may also choose to move their cars into the parking structure after 9:00pm and park for free.

Office Hours

Administrative offices typically post their hours of their department web pages and/or outside their main entrances.  Faculty office hours are posted on their current class web pages in Brightspace.
