Services for Spring 2021

Building Access

Access to campus is restricted to current IC faculty, staff, and students who have completed the Daily Health Screening process. You will need your Ithaca College ID card to enter the Gannett Center from the northeast entrance or the south Towers-side entrance on weekends and after 5 pm on weekdays.

You will also be asked to swipe your card inside the library. This will assist with contact tracing.

The connecting passage between the library and Whalen is closed for the Spring semester.

Building Rules

  • All patrons must abide by the Ithaca College Community Agreement.
  • Eating is not allowed in the library. The nearest designated dining area is Emerson Suites.
  • Only beverages in covered containers are allowed.
  • Do not move furniture.
