Therefore, the library at the Fort campus will stay open from 10:30 am to 9:45 pm, November 16 onwards. Alongside, the library will also stay open from 10:00 am to 5:45 pm on second and fourth Saturday as well as Sundays and public holidays. The decision to amend the timings had cheered the students who can now use the library more often with ease.

Mumbai University has been bestowed with historical heritage and needs to be passed down to the upcoming generations. However, the present condition of the library is pathetic. Currently, the entire library has only four to five fans, which is really frustrating for the students. Therefore, we have approached the authorities and have asked them to take necessary steps as soon as possible,” said Soumit Salunkhe, an LLM student.
