Late night study

Kennedy Library allows you to stay until your work gets done, or to start studying as early as you need to! The Library offers three spaces that are open late (often 24/7), including a quiet study area and an open computer lab (Poly Connect Lab) featuring 50 PC and Mac workstations.

Bring your ID

Cal Poly IDs are required for access when the main Library is closed.
Hours may vary during quarter breaks, holidays, and the summer quarter. Please check our open hours page for details.
