The library is generally closed on Sundays and Public Holidays.   During exam times, the library is open until 11pm Mondays - Thursdays and on Sundays during this time.


The Hlanganani section of the library is the official afterhours study space.  


However, the libraries' electronic resources are available at any time, from anywhere off campus.    


You need your student card to be able to come into the Chancellor Oppenheimer Library, and to be able to borrow materials, print or photocopy.   No student card = no entry.
