The Night Owl Lab, IIT’s overnight computer lab, is now open for the spring semester. You can find the Night Owl Lab on the lower level of the library Sunday through Thursday nights, from 11pm to 7am. There is no Night Owl Lab on Fridays or Saturdays.

What’s in the Night Owl Lab?
There will be 50 laptops equipped with OTS computer lab software that you can use overnight in the library. It will also have remote printing (black and white only). A map of the open space and more information can be found on our 24 hour access page. Additional information can also be found on the OTS Night Owl Lab page.

But wait! That’s not all! Not only will the Night Owl Lab be available to you overnight, but so will many of the most popular features of Galvin Library:
• scanners

• vending machines
• a variety of seating options from beanbags to traditional chairs
• group and quiet study space
• access to the reserve textbook collection

Schedule for Sunday through Thursday nights:

• 9:00pm: Hold your IIT ID card up to the card reader outside the main doors to get inside.
• 11:00pm: The Night Owl Lab opens on the lower level. The upper level of the library closes. No upper level resources or services are available from 11pm to 8:30am.
