Accessible entrance and Undergrad Study Center

The accessible entrance to the building is located on the south side of the ground floor's east wing. A railing is on the right as you approach the entrance. A door-opening plate is mounted at the end of the railing farthest from the door.

The entrance is to the left of the railing. To reach the bookdrop, walk with the railing on your left. The bookdrop and the entrance are adjacent along the wall, but access to them is separate because of the railing.

This entrance gives access to the Goldstein Undergraduate Study Center (USC) when the rest of the building is closed. The USC usually has extended hours and is open all night Sunday through Friday during the academically busy weeks of the year: See the hours calendar.
