You can also find building information and floor plans on our website. 

Noble Library: Your 24/5 Library

Starting on Sunday, October 23, Noble Library on the Tempe campus is now open twenty-four hours a day, five days a week. 

Students, faculty and staff will need to use their Sun Card between the hours of 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays to access Noble Library. Check lib.asu.edu/hours for the most up-to-date information.

Printing, copying and scanning at the library

Through the Print Anywhere, library users have the ability to print, scan, or copy to any one of nearly 70 devices on all four campuses and other locations (including all ASU Library locations).

Food and drink is okay

Food and drink are permitted in all library buildings, except where otherwise indicated (such as reading rooms and audio-visual studios). 

Food services are available in a few of our libraries. Hayden Library on the Tempe campus offers the Bodhi Market (Level 1) as well as Charlie’s Cafe and the self-service P.O.D. Market (Concourse). Noble Library on the Tempe campus and Fletcher Library on the West campus each feature a Starbucks location on the first floor.

Events for you and your friends

Hayden Library on the Tempe campus will host Passport to ASU on Wednesday, Aug. 17 from 4 to 9 p.m. Discover resources in the ASU community, find your classes and meet new friends! Be sure to check out Sun Devil Sync for all of the semester’s events. Play games, make buttons or learn new skills at the libraries and on campus.

Technology available to borrow

Forget to bring your charger? Stop by the information desk for chargers, headphones, calculators or other items you may have forgotten. Computers are also available in the libraries for you to use that include preinstalled applications like LockDown Browser.  

Reserve a study room

From comfy chairs to reservable study rooms, our libraries have plenty of space for you to focus. Some of these study rooms are able to be reserved, while others are merely open to use on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Get help with Ask a Librarian

If you get lost or confused, or just don’t know where to start, Ask a Librarian can connect you with library professionals who are standing by to help you.

Spaces for creativity, inquiry and exploration

The ASU Library is home to some cool research and collaboration spaces where you can discover 3D printing, maps from around the world and archival collections! All library research and archive units are open, but check to see if you need to make a reservation.

Good luck, Sun Devils! We’ll see you at the library!
