Library Location

The Biola University Library is centrally located on the campus and is adjacent to Metzger Hall, Rose Hall and the Student Health Center. The circular lantern on the top of the building can be seen from many campus locations. The Library contains the collections for all Biola University schools.


Library Hours

Due to the pandemic and Los Angeles County restrictions, the library is not open for in-person use. However, Biola students, faculty, and essential staff who have been approved to come on campus, can request and pick up materials from the library using the Library Pick-up Service. Course reserves and reference material can only be viewed at the library entrance by appointment. You can also use the Ask Us service to chat with a library staff member, send an email, or make an appointment for a research consultation with a librarian.
