Accessibility

The library space in Jordan Hall is under renovation. NC State faculty, staff, and students can borrow technology and pick up requested items from a temporary space in Biltmore Hall, Room 3003.

How to get to Biltmore 3003: The eastern door of Biltmore Hall (on the side of the building closest to Jordan Hall) has a pushpad, power-assisted door that enters on the first floor. Continue to the end of the hallway and take the elevator to the third floor. Turn left out of the elevator and Room 3003 is around the corner.

We can also ship books and technology to you if you prefer. For technology, place a request. For books and other items, follow the directions for Tripsaver mail delivery. There is no cost to you for this service.

If you have questions or comments about the accessibility of our space and services, please contact the staff by emailing nrl_library@ncsu.edu or calling (919) 515-2306.

NC State permit-holders

The closest car-accessible parking is on Faucette Drive in the Biltmore South Lot between Jordan and Biltmore Halls, where there are two spaces. There are also three spaces at the east end of Jordan Addition, located near the Morrill Drive intersection. Vehicles parked in these spaces must display both the appropriate NC State permit and a valid state-issued handicapped parking placard or plate.

Visitors

Visitors with a valid state-issued handicapped parking placard or plate may park in the Coliseum Deck (not shown on map above), a gated lot that requires a credit card to enter and for payment upon exit. Accessible spaces for cars and vans are located near the exit. From the parking deck visitors can travel around campus for free on any of the Wolfline buses, which have wheelchair lifts and a kneeling capability to assist those with limited mobility.

Visitors needing accessible parking closer to Jordan Hall can inquire about a visitor pass by contacting the Transportation Office.
