  • Welcome! Our libraries are open. Please check our current hours of operation
  • As part of ongoing efforts to improve the student experience in our spaces, York Facilities is proceeding with the refurbishment of the elevator in Scott Library. Work is scheduled to begin on December 5 and is expected to conclude on February 3, 2023. While the elevator is out of service, the escalators and stairs are available. Despite this, we recognize some Community Members may experience a level of disruption. Contingency plans and other supports have been put in place to minimize the disruption.

Scott Library
