24-hour study room closed 10/24 to 12/20/2019

Ablah Library’s 24-Hour Study Room is closed through the end of the semester

Students have asked for an improved study room - with restroom facilities - for years. We appreciate your patience while we renovate this space to better meet the needs of the WSU community. As a reminder, Chromebooks are available for 3-day checkout, and Ablah Library's hours will be extended pre-finals.

Please come and enjoy the new, larger space in January!
