The circulation desk is located to the left of the library entrance. This is where students, alumni, faculty, and staff may check out and return books and other library items, including laptops, book stands, and standing desks. Please ask a circulation staff member for help finding books and other library materials.
Pence Law Library is located at 4300 Nebraska Ave, NW, Washingon, DC 20016. The library is open to the public Monday-Saturday, except during reading and exam periods in December and May when access is limited to WCL students, faculty, staff and Federal Government Depository patrons. Consult the Circulation Hours tab for further information on Library hours and access. Parking is available in the garage at 4300 Tenley Circle, NW for a charge of $8.00. Please note that the District of Columbia requires that the Washington College of Law inform all of our visitors that they cannot park on nearby public streets. Those who do so may be subject to a $75.00 fine.
The library will open on Friday, August 28th. Access to the library is limited to 50 students at a time, presently allocated to those who completed the application sent last week indicating their need to use the Commons, the cafeteria or the library as a place to study. We will, however, continue to offer reference services by email and chat. Students who are approved to use study space in the library and in the cafeteria or the Commons will be notified.
