Campus Planning

Burns Plaza

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

Getting to Campus

Please review the information linked at the left for transportation and parking options.

Campus Hours

The parking garage gates are open 5:30 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week, except during Law School holidays (see the current academic calendar or InBrief for dates that campus is closed). 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 above.

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.

Olympic and James Wood Gate Schedule

Day Open Locked
Monday and Thursday 5:30 a.m. 11:00 p.m.
Friday 5:30 a.m. 10:00 p.m.
Saturday 7:00 a.m. 10:00 p.m.
Sunday 7:00 a.m. 10:45 p.m.

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 on their department Web pages and/or outside their main entrances. Faculty office hours are posted on their current class Web pages.
