Libraries and museums


The following libraries and library facilities are currently open at reduced capacity to UCLA students, faculty and staff:  

The Ahmanson–Murphy Reading Room at UCLA Library Special Collections is also currently open at reduced capacity but will be temporarily closed beginning July 1 to accommodate critical infrastructure work. The reading room is expected to reopen at the start of the fall quarter.

Seat reservations are required for these spaces (see law library access), and entrants to these buildings will be required to wear a mask, show their BruinCard and a COVID-19 symptom-monitoring clearance certificate, and present their seat reservation confirmation.

Additional libraries are expected to open in phases, ramping up to 50% as restrictions are loosened.

While most UCLA Library buildings remain closed, the libraries continue to provide an array of resources for students, faculty and instructors.


Hammer Museum: The Hammer has reopened to the public with limited guest capacity. The reopening coincides with the museum’s acclaimed biennial, “Made in L.A. 2020: a version,” which will be presented at both the Hammer and the Huntington Museum of Art from April 17 through Aug. 1. Advance reservations (free) will be required.

Fowler Museum: The Fowler will reopen July 1. Please check the museum’s website for further updates.
