Andersen Library Hours


The Special Collections, Area Research Center, and University Archives are located on the first floor, lower level of the Andersen Library, which is in the Andersen Library building next to parking lot 12 off of Prairie Street. Andersen Library is located at 800 West Main Street (between Prince Street and Prairie Street) in Whitewater, WI.

The Andersen Library building is somewhat complicated because Andersen Library is not the only entity in the building and there are building entrances on two levels. Building entrances are numbered. The best entrances to use to reach Andersen Library are number 3 on the east side of the building through the courtyard (then go up the stairs or use the elevator to get to the Andersen Library main doors) or number 12 on the west side of the building, which is on the same level as the Andersen Library main doors (second floor). Once inside the library, use an internal staircase or elevator to get to the first floor, lower level. The Special Collections, Area Research Center, and University Archives is located in Room 1230.
