Window removal project at Barker Library

Work beginning Feb. 28 will affect 24/7 space

Barker Engineering Library will be affected by a project to replace windows and renew façades of buildings 4, 8, and 10. Part of the Institute’s investment in infrastructure renewal, the work on the north façades of these buildings, which face MIT.nano, has been scheduled to coincide with the construction timeline for that project.

The work will affect the fifth floor, including the Barker Library 24/7 space, beginning Tuesday, February 28, and continuing through the first full week of March until all of the perimeter windows have been measured and removed. The window openings will be covered until new windows are installed during phase three of the project beginning late this year.

All of the work is slated to take place between 11pm and 9am to minimize disruption to the MIT community. While the 24/7 space will remain open throughout the duration of the project, users of the space should expect noise and other disruptions. Additional 24/7 study spaces are available at Dewey and Hayden.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this work.
