After-Hours begins September 3. Procedures for obtaining an access card have been simplified. Students no longer need to fill out a registration form on the library website. Instead:

If you are a returning student who has never requested an access card for the After Hours Study area, just present your Drake ID at the University Facilities Key Shop in order to get an access card.
