MD Anderson Library Flooring Replacement Project Begins June 27

An upcoming construction project will temporarily disrupt access to specific areas within MD Anderson Library.

Flooring replacement work in Blue wing 4, 5, and 6 will begin on Monday, June 27 and continue through Friday, July 22, with preparation work starting on Friday, June 24. Each floor will be inaccessible for approximately two weeks, with some work overlap requiring that more than one floor will be closed at a time.

The schedule of affected areas is as follows:

  • 6th floor: Monday June 27 – Friday July 8  
  • 5th floor: Tuesday July 05 – Friday July 15
  • 4th floor: Monday July 11 – Friday July 22

Although collections housed in these areas will be inaccessible while construction is underway, users can still request to have an item retrieved. UH Libraries can assist with alternate access such as e-book, interlibrary loan (ILL), or finding a copy in a local library.

Due to the nature of the project, users can expect to hear noise. Disposable earplugs are available for users at the Service Desk. Alternate areas for study can be found on:

  • Brown wing floors 2 – 5: individual study carrels
  • Blue wing 7 – 8: open study spaces
  • Gold wing 3: open study spaces 

See MD Anderson Library floor maps.

For more information on access to materials or spaces, please contact Lee Hilyer.
