We've made some changes for Fall 2020 to help keep our students, faculty, and staff safe.
Mississippi State University has implemented a new policy requiring all students and faculty to wear face coverings while in buildings. Everyone must wear face coverings while in any of our facilities. If you do not comply with this policy, you may be asked to leave the facility.
We will also be enforcing physical distancing - please keep at least 6 feet of distance from other patrons and our faculty and staff.
These requirements are in place to protect you and MSU employees - please abide by them.
For more information, see MSU's Health & Safety Return Plan.
Beginning August 3, Mitchell Memorial Library, Bob and Kathy Luke Architecture Library, and the College of Veterinary Medicine Library will be open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 5 p.m. All libraries will be closed on weekends until the fall semester begins.
On August 10, the Old Main Academic Center will open to the public from 8:00am until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Fall semester hours will begin on August 17. During Fall 2020, the libraries will operate with shortened hours to provide ample time for the cleaning of the Libraries’ facilities.
