UOW Library ACCESS 24/7 services are relocating to Building 16 in 2020, to offer an expanded service to students and staff across all three floors of the Wollongong Campus Library. Moving this service from Building 17 will provide significant additional space to meet a variety of study needs, accommodating group, quiet and collaborative study, as well as access to browse and borrow from the Library Collection after hours. Brand new student lounge and kitchen facilities have also been installed on the Ground Floor to allow for relaxation and refreshment when taking a break.

An after-hours security card will be required to take advantage of upgraded services, which can be applied for via the ACCESS 24/7 web page from Week 1 of Session. Staff and students who already hold security cards for the Wollongong Campus will be automatically updated to include Building 16. ACCESS 24/7 will commence at 8am on Monday 2 March and be available throughout Sessions 1 and 2 (Autumn and Spring).
