Benjamin P. Thomas Memorial Civil War Collection and Conference : Schewe Library Parking and Accessibility

Schewe Library Information

Accessible Parking: 
The closest parking lot to Schewe Library is directly behind the Library off Park Street. The lot is small, but you will find a disability-accessible space on the leftmost side of the lot, closest to the building. From there, you can enter the main floor of the Library from the ramp that leads up the Hilltop to the quad. 

There are also two additional accessible parking spaces by Rammelkamp Chapel. To get to Schewe Library from there, you can go up sidewalk ramp to the Hilltop and enter the Library building through the main entrance. 


Other Parking Information: 
You are welcome to park in the small lot behind the Library, if there is an available space. You are also welcome to park on
 Park Street (parallel, street parking directly behind the Library). You can also find a map of campus with visitor parking information here.

Navigating Schewe Library and Elevator Access
Schewe Library has three floors. The elevator for Schewe Library is located in the librarian offices on the main floor, but is open to the public to use. It is located within view of a hallway near the circulation desk.  Any library staff member will be happy to assist you in locating it, if you have any difficulties. 

Stairs are located between the Circulation desk and Schewe 212 (directly to the right of the main floor entrance) and behind the Digital Learning Center.  

Restrooms are located on the lower floor near the Khalaf al Habtoor Archives. If you need an all-gender or main floor accessible restroom, you can find one in Kirby Learning Center (building 23), two-minutes away from the Library down an accessible, outdoor path. 

Sensory-Friendly Space

A sensory-friendly and meditation space is available on the third floor of Schewe Library in Room 304, directly to the right of the elevator. No reservation is required!
