There are two accessible entrances to the Library.

  1. East Entrance: There is a ground-level entrance to the Library through a plaza on the East side between the Library and Rees-Jones Hall. The north side of the plaza is at sidewalk level. For access from the south side of the plaza, a ramp is available at the southeast corner. The doors on the plaza open into the ground floor of the Library during all the hours that the Library is open, although TCU ID card access is required after non-TCU visitor hours are over.
  2. Northwest Entrance: An entrance with a ramp is on the northwest corner of the library near University Drive. A button near the accessible entrance activates a buzzer at the Library Services desk. Desk staff then activate the automated door mechanism to allow entrance. This ramp is not available from midnight to 7AM; use the east side entrance during this time. 

Non-TCU patrons can check the library's hours to see the times during which they are admitted to the building. There is handicapped parking on Lowden Street and in nearby parking lots and a shuttle service through campus, but visitors to campus first need to arrange a parking permit through the TCU Police Department.
