About Open Hours

Open Hours allow you to use The Corner Studio  without booking in advance or being constrained by a specific meeting focus--you can simply drop in and work, study, or meet. This open-endedness allows for new, exciting interactions between students, faculty, and others who wish to share in an experience of ingenuity and boundlessness.

Interactive technologies and inviting spaces are available at your disposal, providing a platform for students, faculty, staff, and the community to collaborate and uncover new creative paths. We ask that you check our events calendar in advance, as scheduled programs may be taking place that will decrease the amount of space available for drop-in work.

Open Hours Schedule: Fall 2016 

Monday – Friday 9am – 6pm

Saturday 12pm – 6pm

Sunday 12pm – 6 pm

public days

In the early years of the University of Virginia, the academic year concluded with "Public Day", when students presented their research to the public, inviting the community to Grounds to share in the fruits of their studies. The tradition faded away in the mid-nineteenth century, but in 2014, the university began its revival. Today's Public Days includes an an annual exhibition and reception on the Lawn and community partner events to make the scholarly and creative accomplishments of UVA students visible to the larger public.
