 Bailey Library - Slippery Rock University 



Driving Directions

Bailey Library is located on East Central Loop Drive, on the left, opposite the Swope Music Building and the University Union.

Map to Bailey Library

Enter the University from the Kiester Road entrance and follow Central Loop Drive to the right.  (View the complete Campus Map and Driving Directions for additional information.) 

The entrance to the library is located on the quad, not on Central Loop Drive, so it is necessary to walk around to the front of the building to enter.  Check library hours (always updated on the right hand side of the Library web page) or by calling 724-738-2058.  Parking is available behind the library and near the Swope Music and University Union Buildings.  Parking restrictions apply.


During business hours, the lot behind the library is restricted for staff parking.  Designated areas on campus for residents, commuters, staff, handicapped, and visitor parking are strictly enforced between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.  During weekend and nighttime hours, these areas are considered open to the public, with the exception of handicapped parking.

If visiting during the day, please obtain a visitors parking permit at the University Police Office, 145 Kiester Road.
