Change in Library entrance

The main entrance to the Library will be closed off as crews complete the work on the Campus Center and Student Residence. Entrance to the Library will be from the door on the Riverway. This entrance is not handicap accessible. If you require assistance, please call the Circulation Desk at 617-879-2220.

While the main entrance is closed off, the book drop for after-hours return of materials will be inaccessible. Please DO NOT leave materials outside the door, where they will be susceptible to damage or theft. Patrons are responsible for the cost of replacing items that are damaged or lost. Materials should be returned during Library operating hours only. No fines will be charged for Wheelock items returned late during this time.

Please see the Intersession Hours post for the Library’s schedule during the winter break. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Enjoy the break!


Don’t forget to bring those items back!

As the end-of-semester break approaches, we would like to remind students to return any materials they have checked out of the Library by Tuesday, December 16. Unsure of what items are checked out in your name? Use the My Account feature of the FLO catalog to check your record. Directions on how to use this feature can be found here.

If the Library is closed when you come to return your items, you can use the drop box located to the right of the door. Just open the slot and slide the materials down the chute. Please do not leave materials outside the Library door – if something is damaged or stolen, you will be responsible for the cost of replacing it.

Thanks in advance for your prompt returns!


Extended Library hours December 3-15

The Library will be open for extended late-night hours for the rest of the semester, starting December 3 and ending December 15. Most Library services will be available during these hours, so come by and study, catch up on your reading, pound out that paper, or take a break from your coursework and play a game.

The Library’s hours will be as follows: Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. – 1 a.m.; Friday and Saturday, 8 a.m. – 11 p.m.; and Sunday, 12 p.m. – 1 a.m.

The door will lock at 10 p.m., so you’ll need to use your Wheelock ID or call ext. 2220 to be let in.

Additionally, on the last day of exams, December 16, the Library will open at 8 a.m. for your last-minute studying needs. We will close at 5 p.m. that day, and starting December 17 we will switch to our intersession schedule of Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Best of luck to you all as the semester comes to a close!
