Hours of Operation
The Student Center holds regular building hours throughout the year. Hours change during holidays, academic breaks and the summer. Please note: hours of operation are subject to change based on staffing circumstances and usage data, and any adjustments will be posted in a timely manner on this website.

The Student Center has experienced a major decrease in room rental requests from registered student organizations (RSOs) and departments as well as foot traffic in the facility. After hearing no concerns from Student Center tenants (offices and RSOs) and the Student Center Advisory Council regarding whether a decrease in hours would negatively affect their ability to serve their constituents, the Student Center has revised our hours of operation to be closed during the most underutilized times for the remainder of the Fall semester.

Effective Saturday, October 3, 2020, through January 11, 2021 (including the final exam period), with the exceptions below.
Monday – Thursday 7 a.m. – 8 p.m.*

Registered student organizations and departments can still reserve space Monday – Friday until 10 p.m., Saturdays from Noon – 5 p.m. and Sundays 2 – 8 p.m. if it is confirmed three weeks in advance.  Inquiries should be made to the Event Management Office at scevents@gsu.edu or 3-1870.
