The Student Union Building (SUB) is open for extended hours during the exam period. From Dec. 5 – 14, the SUB’s hours will be extended from 11:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. Evered Hall is also open as dedicated study space, with chairs and tables set up in the hall. It will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m.
Additionally, Fair Grounds Coffee Shop in the SUB is now open 7:30 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.
SUS president, Gurvir Gill, said that SUS will discuss with the university the possibility for the SUB to be open 24-hours during the winter semester’s exam period.
At the Nov. 23 SUS board meeting, Andrew Stahl, arts representative, asked if other campuses with similar extended building hours see an increase in crime, and if anything will be done at the SUB to mitigate risk.
Gurvir said that UFV will provide security during the extended hours.
Stahl also suggested that the parking lot in front of the SUB be designated as a women’s parking lot, similar to lots six and seven, north and east of A building, respectively, where security has a higher presence after 4:30 p.m.
