U Card Access to Mondale Hall and the Law Library

Your student ID card (U Card) grants you 24-hour access to Mondale Hall, the Law Library, and the building’s printing stations. You may obtain your U Card from the U Card Office (room G22, Coffman Memorial Union, East Bank) once you have enrolled. Access to these resources is typically granted during orientation, but may vary depending on when you were issued your U Card.

If you experience access issues with your U Card or don’t get your U Card until after orientation, visit the Law Technology Office (room 260 inside the Law Library).

If your U Card is damaged, lost or stolen, visit the U Card Office.

Note that when trying to access Mondale Hall outside of building hours, you may need to swipe your card through the card reader a few times before getting a “green light”.

Also, at no time will your U Card give you access to the Library doors on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th floors. The only student entrance and exit to the Library is on the first floor plaza.

Law Technology Office (Law Library, room 260)

The Law Technology Office, aka The Laptop Center, is located in Room 260 of the Law Library. You must enter the Law Library on the first floor and then go to the second floor within the Law Library to get to room 260.
