Scott Hall Protocol
July 29, 2013

Many members of the faculty and staff have already moved in and we can’t wait until everyone can join us at our new home at Scott Hall. Of course, with a new space comes new protocol.

Building Access First and foremost, you will need to have your University ID card visible at all times. Everyone will be required to show ID upon entrance, and all visitors must sign in at the front desk. The building is open to the public Monday-Thursday, 8:30 a.m. - 6:30 p.m. and Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. A security guard is on location 24 hours a day. Students can access the building starting at 6 a.m. until the library closes (Monday–Friday) and on Saturday and Sunday during library hours by using your SLU ID. Faculty and staff have building access 6 a.m.-midnight, seven days a week.

Scott Hall Shuttle You can access Scott Hall from the main university and designated law school parking via a new shuttle. Hours and information can be found here. The shuttle will connect Scott Hall to the main University campus, Salus Center and the law school parking at Schnucks Culnaria and 1215 Olive St. surface lot. The final shuttle runs from Scott Hall at 10:10 p.m. with drop-offs at Culinaria, the 1215 parking lot and finally at Busch Student Center.
