Construction Update – Priestly Law Library closed to public June 1-September 1

To support ongoing construction at the Fraser Building, the Diana M. Priestly Law Library will be closed to the public for a 3-month period beginning June 1, 2023. The Law Library will re-open to the public in early September 2023 to align with the UVic Fall 2023 academic calendar.

The Law Library remains open to UVic employees, faculty, and students during construction. However, students are encouraged to use Mearns-McPherson Library as an alternate study space, if access to the physical collection at the Law Library is not needed.

A reminder, access to the Law Library is via the side stairwell off of parking lot 8 during regular library operating hours.

Members of the public requiring law research help or access to materials can contact the Law Library for assistance (250-721-8565 |
