Registration for appointments closes three hours before the appointment begins.
At the date and time of your appointment, please come to the Memorial Way entrance to William H. Gates Hall and call the number posted on the sign on the door. William H. Gates Hall is currently closed to outside visitors. You must wait for library staff to come let you in. Following current law community members into the building is strictly prohibited. Failure to abide by this or any other aspect of our Code of Conduct can result in a permanent ban from the facility.
Appointments are for one hour. You may reserve multiple hours in one day.
An active UW Borrower's card or identification and a legal research need are required upon entry.
All appointments may be canceled due to library staffing emergencies (WAC 478-168).
