The University Library, working in partnership with the School of Graduate Studies, is providing McMaster graduate students with a dedicated study space in Mills Library.
The Graduate Study Space, located in Mills Learning Commons, is intended to support any graduate students who have unreliable internet connections at home and/or are in challenging living situations that don’t support an effective writing/studying environment.
Graduate students wishing to use this space must first apply for access. Students will then be able to use their Working@McMaster ID card, or a white security card to access the Learning Commons. Security cards will be provided to students if needed.
A number of measures have been out in place to maintain the safety of those using the space.
In addition to wearing masks and respecting physical distancing guidelines, students are required to complete the Provincial Self-Assessment Tool one hour prior to arriving on-site, and are required to complete the COVID-19 Awareness training offered through Mosaic. Hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes will also be provided, among a number of other safety measures.
Hours for this study space have been extended. The space is accessible Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
No access will be provided to the print collection or other parts of the Library.
