Engineering Library Closing Early November 5

The Engineering Library will close at 6:00 pm on November 5, 2015 due to the evening football game against Mississippi.  See the letter from the Provost below for more information.


To Staff and Faculty:

MU Football takes on the Mississippi St. Bulldogs at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5, in our first weeknight game since 2009.  We are excited about this opportunity to showcase MU and our student athletes on the ESPN network. 

A team of individuals from Athletics, Faculty Council, the Provost’s Office, and Campus Facilities has been working diligently to minimize disruption to our campus, and we want to emphasize that classes will be in session all day. The parking situation will not prevent students from being able to attend classes scheduled for Thursday afternoon; students can move cars to alternative lots before afternoon classes begin.  

All supervisors, deans, and department chairs are encouraged to adjust work schedules or allow employees to use vacation or personal time so that as many employees as possible leave campus by 3 p.m. on November 5. The Columbia Public School System has instituted an in-service day the afternoon of November 5, so children will be let out of school early that day. Please note that no one is required to leave our campus early. 

Because of the major influx of Tiger fans as well as some visiting Mississippi St. fans, the parking lots near Memorial Stadium that accommodate fans must be cleared by 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5.  (This is the same process that is used for Saturday games.)  MU staff have been working to identify campus parking accommodations for those students and staff who will have to move their cars; everyone in the specific lots affected will be notified via e-mail regarding parking relocation instructions.

The Tiger Avenue Parking Garage and Parking Structure No. 7 will not be available for football parking for this game. Employees who work evening or night shifts and generally park in a surrounding surface lot are directed to park in Tiger Avenue Garage or Parking Structure No. 7.  All staff and faculty parking in lots 14A, CG1, CG17, RP10, RP2, RP3, RP4, RP5, RP8, SG2, SG4N, SG4, SG5, SG6, SG7, SG7C, SG9, WG1, WG14 will be closed to employee parking beginning at 4 p.m. that day.  See this map to determine whether your parking lot is affected. All employees who regularly park in these lots must move their cars by 4 p.m.  Game day parking will begin in those areas at 4:30 p.m. Those lots will re-open for normal use at 7 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 6. 

Faculty who teach classes after 3 pm on Nov. 5 will receive a separate email providing detailed instructions regarding parking. 

To alleviate parking and traffic issues for patients, MU Health Care clinics located at University Hospital, Ellis Fischel Cancer Center, the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute and the University Physicians Medical Building will close at 1 p.m. Ancillary departments also will operate on a lighter schedule that afternoon. Valet parking will close at 2 p.m. The hospital and emergency room will remain open and continue normal operation throughout the evening.

I hope we will give a warm Mizzou welcome to Mississippi St. fans and wish our Tigers a great victory.  Additional information is available at:  http://mutigers.com/thursday.

home Engineering Library Changes to ELTC in 2015-16

Changes to ELTC in 2015-16

You may have noticed that things look a little different in the Engineering Library.  Due to the Lafferre Hall Renovation, the Apple Computer Lab has moved into what was formerly the “quiet side” of the library (W2003).  We still have plenty of computers, tables, and chairs for study space, as well as study rooms E-H.  Groups may reserve study rooms for 2 hours at a time.


home Resources and Services Welcome Back Engineering Students!

Welcome Back Engineering Students!

We hope you enjoyed your summer break and we are excited to have you back!  You may have noticed that Lafferre Hall is even more difficult to navigate than usual due to the renovation project.  But fear not!  If you find that you are lost, simply use the hashtag #LostinLafferre and someone will come find you.  Or find an office with a #LostinLafferre sign or anyone with a #LostinLaffere t-shirt, and we will help you find your way.

Also, be sure to check for Renovation Updates and Maps to find out the latest information about the renovation.

Don’t forget to stop by the Engineering Library for research help, study space, equipment checkout, and more.  Good luck in your Fall 2015 semester!
