Hail update – Law Library level 2 and Hancock Levels 2 & 3 reopened

27 Mar 2024

Law Library 

We are very excited to announce that the Law Library level 2 roofing work is now complete. The library is once again water-tight, and we have a new ceiling and lighting. 

We are pleased to reopen this space in time for the long weekend and mid-semester break, which we know is an intense time of study and research. 

We would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone involved in this process. In particular, the contractors for their hard work and dedication; the College of Law community for your support during this long process; and all library users for your patience. 

Normal access to the physical collections has been restored. 2-Day loan items will be kept downstairs, as the new location has been well-received by our patrons. 

Don’t forget, you can book research consultations with our staff and browse our suite of law guides for information on the huge variety of sources we have available. 

Hancock Library 

Hancock Library levels 2 and 3 East have fully reopened following roofing works. 

We are very pleased to have these spaces operational again. Thank you to everyone involved, and to all our library users for your patience during this process. 

Menzies Library 

  • Final works are progressing well, and the new copper roofing looks great. 
  • The lower roof was handed over this week. Scaffolding will be removed after the Easter break. 
  • All internal works are now completed. 
  • The final roofing area (along the oval side) will require about 1.5 weeks of noisy works, then the copper will be finalised.
