UW Closes Wyoming Union, Coe Library

March 23, 2020

In response to concerns about the novel coronavirus COVID-19, the University of Wyoming has closed the Wyoming Union and Coe Library.

The Wyoming Union and the dining establishments located in the building are closed until further notice. The Washakie Dining Center will remain open for UW students remaining on campus with meal plans. Brunch is served daily from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., and dinner is from 4:30-6 p.m.

For more information, call Rian Rabideau, Residence Life director, at (307) 766-3175 or email rrabidea@uwyo.edu.

Beginning today, Coe Library also is closed until further notice.

“We have extended all due dates, including interlibrary loan (ILL) items, until May 18,” says Cass Kvenild, UW Libraries associate dean. “This excludes course reserves and equipment.”

Library materials can be returned at the external book drop located at 14th Street and Ivinson Avenue. Kvenild says patrons can renew items that have not gone overdue or reached renewal limits at Login + Accounts.

Patrons can visit www.uwyo.edu/libraries for more information and for access to online resources.

“Research help, reference and instruction are all available online, and also our large collections of eBooks, electronic journals and streaming media,” Kvenild says. “If items you need are not online, you may request scanned versions of ILL items or request purchase of an electronic version.”

For more information, call (307) 766-3170 or email libcirc@uwyo.edu.

UW classes are moving to an online format March 30 following an extended spring break, and the vast majority of students will not return to live in the university’s residence halls. All university events -- including athletics competitions and practices, and all other organized gatherings -- have been suspended until further notice. UW facilities have been closed to the public.

Many UW operations are continuing, however, and employees have been encouraged to work remotely, when possible.
