While classes are in session, the Aeronautics and Technology Building is generally open Monday-Thursday 7:15 a.m.-10:00 p.m., Friday 7:15 a.m.-5:30 p.m., closed Saturday and Sunday. Our Summer building hours may differ. Exceptions are made for special events. The building is open during Fall and Spring Break with limited hours, but closed during Winter Break as the entire university is closed. Individual labs, facilities, and offices may keep their own hours and/or require special permission or scheduled visitation.
